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.

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.
