Portraits of homeless people, by Lee Jeffries

When I first saw these portraits, I was blown away. Each face a story. So powerful, so impressive, so full of emotion…

They are the work of Lee Jeffries, a UK-based photographer, who started off his photography career by shooting sporting events. But a chance meeting with a young homeless girl in the streets of London not only changed his perception about homeless people, but also his artistic approach forever. He now travels around Europe and the US to find homeless people for his portraits, the main focus of his work, and makes an effort to get to know them a bit personally before taking their photos.

Jeffries uses his photography to draw attention to and raise funds for the homeless, posting the images to Flickr, selling his photos and Blurb book  and entering his work into competitions, where he has won many, well-deserved, awards.

A true inspiration…
