People immediately judge, scoff at, and treat the homeless differently without ever speaking to them or coming to know how they arrived at the unfortunate, unwanted situation that precedes and rules over them. This project is an exploration into the very real people that exist who have become the bygones of our present reality. I engaged with each poverty survivor to hear their story to see if I could help them in any way, a few dollars, food, transporting bags, etc. Upon requesting permission to take their portrait, I asked them to be and act as they normally would when no one pays them any attention. Their faces and identity never revealed so that to chasten the fortunate people for their warrantless discrimination, to avoid further criticism from society, and so people recognize they never deserved to see beings in need that they didn’t care to ever understand.
