Lee Jeffries: Homeless

Lee Jeffries: Homeless | Things and Words | Scoop.it

"If you will forgive my indulgence, This work is most definitely NOT photojournalism. Nor is it intended as portraiture. It's religious or spiritual iconography. It's powerful stuff. Jeffries gave these people something more than personal dignity. He gave them a light in their eyes that depicts transcendence, a glimmer of light at the gates of Eden, so to speak."

Mario Pires's curator insight, February 12, 2014 10:19 AM

These black and white portraits of homeless people are aiming to dramatize reality in a way to make us look at people we normally don't look at in memorable images. I'm a little divided about these portraits, as this visual devices employed can makes us stare at someone with aesthetic pleasure and then walk away forgetting them as quickly as you look at the latest CGI style commercial.
