This is part of a personal project I've been working on for the past few months. Walking through City streets of Britain such as London, Slough etc I'd walk past homeless people like Bobby John whom I met on a journey back home one day. After time their faces would linger in my mind, remembering the moments where passers-by would turn the other way pretending not to see them or often cross the road. Going over to talk to this man was the day that my approach to photography was changed. Stopping to chat, buying them a meal, sitting down there with a cup of tea, brought more of a significant meaning to these photographs. No one likes feeling lonely. So that chat over a cup of tea means a lot. His expression in this photograph hints that no we are now more well acquainted. The connection one feel this portrait along with the rest is proof of that. The reason for defining every detail in their skin such as their wrinkles, hairs, scars, intense gazes and wariness, is to tell the audience of the hardship of their lives, living on the streets. I believe the amount of hardship each of them have been through, are represented by this.
