What comes to mind when you think of homelessness?
- a bum?
- an addict?
- someone with mental illness?
- someone on a corner flying a sign?
- someone in unfortunate circumstances?
There are many reasons for homelessness. Some of the stereotypes are true. But at the end of the day, we are all human. We are all on this earth together.
After talking to many homeless individuals, one thing that many have in common is that they feel as though they are invisible, like no one cares that they are there.
The purpose of this project is to challenge our perceptions on homelessness, to humanize these individuals, to give them a name, and to make the INvisible VISIBLE.
These are all real people with real stories.
