Ethics & Photography – 22 Pictures of the Homeless

One critical part of street photography is that the photographer respects his subjects, who are often strangers. This is essential especially in the case of the homeless. On the street, they’re among the most vulnerable people and cannot hide away from the public eye (or the lens). At the same time, homelessness should not be overlooked. It’s important for society to see and acknowledge the presence of the homeless and a photojournalist should not shy away from this topic.

The best thing you can do is to show their humanity. We often don’t know the story behind the people that live on the street, whether by choice or not. It is safe to assume, however, that their struggles are considerable.

I am surprised that there is no mention of Lee Jeffries. He clicks only images of homeless people and is working towards bringing these people in mainstream life.
