Capturing the 'Homeless of L.A.' this striking image series by Michael Pharaoh exudes raw emotion. The candid set of portraits was taken during the photographer's recent trip to Hollywood where he captured and spoke to the street-dwellers in what he described as both "a sad and humbling experience".

This extraordinary image series is a visual commentary on the city of Los Angeles and the harsh realities of its extremely wealthy and extremely poor inhabitants. While Hollywood is often synonymous with movie stars and mansions, this visual depiction shows us another side of the infamous city that is far from glamorous.

The fascinating 'Homeless of L.A.' portrait set captures unexpected beauty in the everyday individual and celebrates the stories of these lost souls.
