About the artwork

The monochrome portraits made by British photographer Lee Jeffries represent homeless people that he captures as he roams the streets of Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York, London, Paris and Rome. The black-and-white treatment strengthens the contrasts of the frontal images of the Lost Angels series that the photograph Brittany belongs to. Reflecting a sense of violence, they capture the furrows of faces worn out by life, wrinkled, blackened and tired. "Irrespective of their age, homeless people have their past tattooed on their skin," he says. Without make-up or staging, with the exception of a basic reflector that can sometimes be glimpsed in the pupils of his models, Lee Jeffries manages to magnify these streetwalkers, restoring their humanity through the prism of his lens. The masks fall, showing the damage, suffering and the passage of time. Just like the photographs of the American Irving Pen, his models appear to inhabit a world outside of space and time.
