No Home Sweet Home

No Home Sweet Home

Project Statement

Over the past ten years, the homeless population in New York City has increased drastically. Trying to find the reason for this build up, I interviewed scores of men and women living on the street desperate for help. Through research and candid conversation, I learned that the numbers of the marginalized and dispossessed have always been on the rise. As a direct result from slavery and the Jim Crow era, many generations and family lineages have never had a fighting chance to get ahead in life or even keep their heads above water. Many of our homeless turn to drugs and alcohol for relief of the mental and physical turmoil of life on the streets and the viscous cycle roars on. As the world continues to move forward at light speed, so many are getting left behind at a much faster pace.
