Yes! YES! One of the most well-deserved awards I've seen! Congratulations on Winner in People in B&W Photo Challenge! I was fortunate enough to see an exhibition of Richard Avedon's B&W Photos of Working America at the Modern in San Francisco in the 1980's......this photo and your project of street people reminded me of him and his extraordinary legacy of portrait photography on and off the runway....Keep it up...I would love to see your collection sometime! Bravo for you! You found humanity where most people don't even look!

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 on the streets. 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. 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, is represented by these.
