Most days, within a block of my house in San Francisco, I’ll encounter someone who is unhoused. Since 2011 I have befriended and photographed unhoused people, and the experience has changed me in a way I never would have imagined. I will stop and talk to them and listen. They might offer to share food with me, even when they do not have enough for themselves. One man said to me, “Most people see us as drunks, but you talk to us and see our humanity.” This is what I hope my photographs convey.
