I took his portrait in Harvard Square. This marks the last portrait of my project.
He told me that from ages 9-18, he was in custody of the Department of Social Services. It makes me realize the misconceptions about homeless people. Not all homeless people are homeless because of their abuse of alcohol and drugs, but rather the situation that they end up in.
I will be holding a gallery for the month of February at Cary Library in Lexington, MA in the Piper Gallery, displaying fifteen images that I feel best represent my work.
Thank you to all the family, friends, and peers that supported me in my project of taking a portrait of a different person each day of the year. Without your help, it would have been a lot harder to accomplish.
As I look back on the project, I think about and process how much it has changed me as a person. I will go more into detail of how I have been changed once I gather the time collect my thoughts.
Thanks to Damian Barneschi for overseeing the project.
