'Art Start' recently commissioned a photography project that helps to empower homeless teens. For teens who find themselves living on the street, it can be nearly impossible to overcome the stigma associated with homelessness. This beautiful photo series helps to demonstrate that homelessness does not define an individual.

The new photo series is called 'The Portrait Project' and aims to empower homeless teens. To demonstrate that homelessness is not a defining characteristic, Art Start asked each teen to envision their life without obstacles. The organization then turned these dreams into a reality by collaborating with a team of stylists and photographers. The result is a series of beautiful photos that present homeless youth as they wish to be seen.

The series allows viewers to focus on the beauty and strength of people living through hard times, rather than on the struggles they face.
