Description

_“It is still too common that I reflexively look away from homeless people. Conversely, it is human and vulnerable to hold their gaze and to consider that they are people with histories, loves, and losses. In looking away, I make of the homeless a repellent, abject, or cautionary presence – someone or something unworthy of consideration and empathy. In engaging their gaze and responding to their specificity, we seek to understand the homeless as equals, as subjects filled with complicated, tragic, and joyful life experiences, possessed of narrative and creativity, consciousness and desire. Our abjection – or objectification – of the homeless person breeds intolerance and apathy – even violence – and enables this soluble social evil to persist.

“The Reflection in the Pool was made from 2011-2013. The book’s title essay was written by David Harryman, a shipbuilder who had been living rough for more than a year when I met him. Many of the people represented in this book contributed personal images, treasured objects, and photographs of their own – made using disposable cameras. The book is dedicated to the generous people who welcomed me into their lives, exchanged stories and friendship, and made pictures with me: David, Lee, Bob, Deano, Juan, Murph, Mike, John, Andrea, Carlos, George, James, Kim, Joe, Michael, and Mitch.” _
