While working on my thesis project, I’ve developed some good relationships with people in Durham’s homeless community. Because of this, Open Table Ministry, a local nonprofit who provides outreach services to people who are homeless, recently asked me to take portraits of some of their community members for a brochure. Here are three pictures from that little project…
Kimberly, a native of Western Massachusetts, has lived in the woods of Durham, NC with her fiancé for the last year.
Slim, chronically homeless and an alcoholic, lives in a tent behind a church in Durham, NC.
Carl, homeless for 23 years, has lived in a tent in the woods of Durham, NC for the past eight years. He recently participated in a rehab program and is currently in housing.
