About the artwork

The photograph depicts a homeless person. Lee Jeffries is biased to front on views andclosely frames the face. Processing in black and white reinforces the contrasts and shapes the portrait. Neither indulgence, nor complaisance, the style is unadorned. Theartist put emphasis on the relief of the face and laid the wrinkles bare like furrows. Thestrength of this photograph lays in the model?s attitude. Lee Jeffries succeeds in magnifying the character who seems both timeless and out of this world. This portrait speaks volumes. A story unfolds. It is no longer possible for the spectator to remain indifferent. The photograph becomes a document which narrates misery, injustice and suffering. Yet, Jeffries? work is stripped of any sordid realism. The portrait is hieratic and true nobility emanates from this face.

Elle était là, cette petite femme fragile, sans rien, entourée de l'affluence évidente d'une ville qui semblait la jeter de côté. J'espère que mes photographies donneront dans une certaine mesure une voix à ces personnes oubliées.
