Homeless 03


When I saw this homeless gentleman I had to photograph him. He was sitting on Market Street in San Francisco and watching the life performance of a band. From time to time he was moved by the music. When I photographed him it seems to me he was thinking about something else. Maybe the music helped to remember better days. I wonder what went wrong in his life and what could help him to see better days again.

People told me before that homeless people get very attached to their animals. This gentleman was definitely attached to his cat and vice versa. In this image I tried to show the relationship of the two. They are looking at each other and his hand are embracing the cat that is sitting on his lap.

Food for thought: There are many homeless cats in my community that where dumped by their owners. I wish the so called “civilized” people would have the same love for their animals than the homeless people have.


Imagine you are a photographer for a local newspaper. Your team-leader wants you to photograph homeless people in your community for a story. How would you do it?


I photographed this homeless person at a busy street corner. I love the look on his face and how he is holding his cigarette and sign. I changed the picture to black and white and I cropped the image as tight as possible to increase any feelings the viewer might have. In addition I wanted to jump-start the mind by guessing the writing on his sign.

Enjoy and as always be creative with your photography!
