Faces of the Homeless

Faces of the Homeless

As a photographer you come across so many different people with so many different stories but for me none were more touching then the people I shot for Magpie’s Faces of the Homeless last month. Early one morning I headed out with Journalist Sarah Clayton-Lea to see if we could meet some of the people who live on the streets of Dublin and find out a little about there stories. I was in no way unaware of what a huge ask it is of someone in such a difficult situation to open up to a Journalist and have there portrait taken there and then on the street. If I am bluntly honest I not sure what I expected. The people we meet Patrick, Emmett, Joe & June shared there personal stories with us in an honest way that was beyond expectations and deeply touching. The piece is available online in Magpie’s winter edition page 65. It is a beautifully written piece and gives a unique insight into the lives of the people we talked to. http://issuu.com/magpiemagazine_ie/docs/magpie_winter_2015
