Lee Jeffries: Portraits of the Homeless

Impressive black-and-white shots by Manchester-based british photographer Lee Jeffries.
After a chance meeting with a homeless girl in London, Jeffries decided to make homeless people the subject of his art.

One of this people was Latoria, a 29-year-old whose genuine sadness made a particularly deep impression on Jeffries.

“I spent time with her every day of my trip since our first meeting. Her uncompromising addiction to crack and cocaine was both obvious and tragic and I often watched helplessly as she fed that addiction. Perhaps the most moving aspect for me was witnessing her almost child-like vulnerability. There was just something about her that just screamed the tragedy of a wasted life.”
