Street Portraits

These photos were mostly taken around 2009. The people in these photographs are the homeless and street people mostly in the Cincinnati area. I’ve wandered the city capturing these images on the streets and in the homeless camps.

In these images I wanted to give “street people” something that all humans deserve, dignity. They were not done to invoke pity (although many do). They were meant to show people. People that live in very different circumstances than we do but as one homeless man told me “we are still people”.
