The artist

Born in the United Kingdom, Lee Jeffries lives in Manchester and constantly travels to major Western cities to meet people living in the streets, striving to capture their nobility. Formerly an accountant, it was during a marathon he undertook in London that he crossed paths with a young woman snuggled in her sleeping bag near Leicester Square. His perception of homeless people was radically transformed and Lee Jeffries couldn't resist photographing her. This wonderful encounter marked the start of his artistic and social approach: the homeless became his main subjects. This humanist photographer explains that each image is the result of long discussions with each individual, a privileged moment that allows him to establish a connection that is particularly palpable in their gaze. The emotion is in the eyes, explains Lee Jeffries, whose majestic black-and-white portraits enable him to collect funds to assist and bear witness to the difficult living conditions of these isolated individuals.  ...

Je quittais Skid Row lorsque je suis tombé sur Brittany. Ce qui a attiré mon attention était sa beauté, habillée de la tête aux pieds avec des vêtements Burberry. Elle était évidemment sans-abri, confuse, mais elle se démarquait certainement du reste des gens là-bas.

LEE JEFFRIES

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.
