It all started when...

"it was in that moment that this project was born. It was in that moment that I realized I wanted to find a creative way of educating people on the less fortunate and/or homeless. I wanted to find a way to tell their stories and silence the stereotypes that cloud the world’s empathy. In short, I wanted to humanize the individuals that the majority of persons walk by each day without a second look, as if they were a static piece of the cityscape. T had shown me nothing but kindness, and I desperately wished the world would do the same for him and all others in similar situations.

So here I am. 11 years later. Attempting – through art – to honor T and the countless of other homeless individuals who have told/will tell me their stories.

This is Project Humanize. Let’s get started, shall we?"

Homelessness effects every community.

PROJECT HUMANIZE is looking for your Photography skills to help tell the stories of those in your local neighborhood.
