Searching “homeless” online returns photos of homeless people, this gallery was created to showcase photos by homeless people. A weekly workshop trains participants in the technical operation of a camera, how to choose a composition and how to develop strong concepts.

This training is then accompanied with an exhibition of homeless photography, the men and women of Street Sense’s talented photography workshop, coupled with an informal discussion about the impact of artistic creation for a voiceless community. Light refreshments will be served.
