SKID ROW

It is no secret that Los Angeles has become the capital of unsheltered homeless in the country, with over 60,000 counted in the county and 36,000 in the city.

 

For the past six years, I have worked for the community of Skid Row through non-profits like The Midnight Mission, Share A Meal, and The Given Spirit. I have had the privilege to get to know the individuals of this community while trying to understand this error in our society.

 

I hope that through this body of work I can shine a light on what has become our numbing normality, to give voice to many who feel invisible, and to simply listen. But most importantly to provide evidence to our local government of a humanitarian crisis that they have been ignoring for decades. There is a lot we can do and a lot that needs to be done.
