One of my favorite images from my holiday in Italy.
I wasn’t quite prepared for the amount of homeless begging in the streets, at parks and even in outdoor cafes’. Locals walked right by, never seeming to notice.
I have worked with the homeless in the US trying to rehab back into the work force. Most are mentally ill, drug addicts or some other ailment. I found most of the homeless in Italy with similar conditions and my need to help kicked in tremendously. I felt powerless….
I have been approached from several different sources to purchase this print. I will not sell it for the woman in the shot was blind and did not know I took this picture, which feels wrong to sell.
