One of the beauties of being a photographer is being able to bring awareness to a certain subject matter via photographs.
Years ago when I was first starting out, I used to do just that in the worlds of fashion, weddings and red carpet events. Somewhere along the way I realized that high society was not as ‘need to know’ as the everyday goings ons of life around me. People already knew about celebrities, they knew about money and cars and designer couture.
What I wanted to show my friends, family and followers was not something they had already drowned in visually thanks to modern day media…but something they had never seen before. At the very least, I could show them more of the things they had only seen a little of.
This began my career as what I like to call a ‘life photographer’.
The series of photos displayed in this blog entry serve as a small example of a particular part of every day life. They show the unfortunate living conditions of so many of our world’s homeless.
Taken in different cities across the globe, they show that those in need are everywhere. There are hundreds of organizations and websites that you can look into regarding how to help these individuals, one of my favorite locations for information is www.JustGive.org, where they break down in a nutshell multiple ways to help.
