Homeless in Alaska

Posted in Photo Stories by admin on October 14th, 2011

Members of Anchorage’s homeless community have a particularly difficult life.  Alaska’s long, dark, and bitterly cold winters are challenging enough without the added hardship of doing without basic shelter.

With the blessings of Bean’s Cafe, a private facility that supplies shelter and meals to those in need, I began volunteering my time creating portraits of members of Anchorage’s homeless community.  Over the past two years, I have produced over 450 portraits and have supplied prints to each of the participants.

The following portraits are a  sample of the images produced to date.  I hope you find these insightful.  I hope, too, that you will make a contribution of time or cash to organizations in your community that help to feed, cloth, and shelter the homeless.  Even more important, I hope that the next time you pass a homeless person you will consider him or her as a unique individual worthy of your thoughts and your prayers.
