Homeless project 1

This is the tenth portrait of my attempt at the 100 strangers project.


I'd been at maccas earlier in the day reading my book in the air conditioning. This girl and the one I'll be posting at number 11 came in for a meal. We made eye contact but didn't speak or anything. After a short while a homeless man came over to their seat right by the window and stood by them, with his pants half falling off. We exchanged some worried/knowing glances until he walked past them and hocked up a huge lugey straight into the bin. Our glances went straight to revolution and we all had a laugh. They left and we hadn't spoken a word.


An hour or so later I spotted them in this alley way. I had my camera out and was looking for people so I jumped on the opportunity to shoot some strangers I'd connected with earlier in the day. They told me they where in the city researching a school project on homelessness and had spoken to a few people living on the streets. After I'd shot them they gave me their email addresses so I could sent hem a copy and I wished them luck with their project.
