In a world reeking of poverty and detrimental social issues, these emotion-filled visual representations will stimulate senses and trigger tear ducts.

Following real-life homeless individuals, hobos and street kids, these candid captures examine the daily tasks and trials often experienced by vagabonds. Despite the fact that some individuals may see these photographs as exploitatious, they still exude powerful messages and meanings with regard to reality of poverty.

These haunting homeless captures are sure to enable and provoke an eye-opening perspective and outlook, with respect to the lives of hobos, beggars and down-and-out drifters.
