    Powerful look-deep-in-the eyes potraits, Homeless, Manchester-based photographer Lee Jeffries compels us to remember the faces of those we too often ignore. As a beginning street photographer in 2008, the artist captured a homeless woman of eighteen years as she lay in a sleeping bag. When she called him out on the violation, he approached her and apologized. Listening to her story, Jeffries’s passions were ignited, and since that fateful day, he has traveled to Paris, Rome, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and New York in hopes of channeling the heartbreaks of daily life on the streets.

Lee Jeffries tells such powerful, provocative, soul-wrenching stories through his lens. He creates a amplified medium for transporting a cliché to a place of profound context. This was the first of Jeffries' portraits I discovered, and what captivated me was the astonishing eyes of so many of his subjects, as do the storied eyes of this man. Still yourself, then click through. Homelessness is not faceless, and Lee Jeffries gives such a powerful voice to people without one. -- Eve.

I love photographing children and older people and it appears other people feel the same way.... Look at the amazing stories that you can almost read in her face.

Photographer Lee Jeffries has shown that it’s possible by taking very expressive portraits of people. But not just any kind of people; all of his models are homeless men, women and children that he has met in Europe and the United States.
