Part of a series i am working on trying to help to show the helplessness of the homeless. I spent a very illuminating half hour with this guy recently as he tried to survive on the streets of Newcastle upon Tyne. It may have been more heartfelt following a development in my own life; why is it 75-80% of all homeless people in western Europe are men?
Chris demonstrated what the human spirit is capable of enduring simply to put a roof over his head or a meal in his stomach. The contrast could not have been greater between him and the shoppers all around him in the city centre.

Is it by mistake or design?
I feel so alone on a Friday night”
