Invisible

I’m conflicted when it comes to photographing the destitute and homeless. I have read numerous interviews from photographers I respect, who state that it is disrespectful to do so.

Living tough on the streets is a part of the urban landscape as much as the cyclists, the commuters, party goers and the urgent.  As street photographers, if some subjects are taboo, then in this regard,  these people become further from public discourse, invisible.

    I too find myself having the same internal struggle! Personally, I have decided not to shoot people in obvious distress or suffering from mental health issues. But – I am torn on the homeless/street people. You put a valid point though on awareness of the issue.
