Portraits of Homelessness | The Seattle Times

Pacific NW magazine invited residents of several homeless encampments in Seattle to share their personal stories, life lessons, frustrations and dreams based on their experiences living without permanent shelter. The resulting journal features their handwritten remarks, accompanied by black-and-white portraits that each person helped create. We produced a short video in which several participants read segments of their entries and use slow-motion video portraits to help viewers connect with community members we often turn away from.
