Samuel - Homeless Austin -

Homeless Austin. This is a project that I need to follow through more often.

I spent about 40 minutes talking to Samuel. He is 70 years old. He was born

in Sweet water, Texas.


Samuel is a very religious man. In fact he was reading the bible when I took this

picture. According to him he is a Mathematician, computer programmer and a priest. Do I believe him? yes, I do.


My project is Homeless Austin. I plan to walk around Austin, Texas and interview homeless people and ask them 10 questions take a simple portrait and have a good chat. I'm doing this project because I was homeless once for a few months and I find it very eye opening to be on the streets with no place to sleep, eat or shower.
