Artist Spotlight: Lee Jeffries

I am absolutely in love with these photographs.  Lee Jeffries is a self-taught photographer who is making us SEE and ACKNOWLEDGE the people that a lot of us look past AND through every day.  The same people who are hidden under newspapers, asleep on a park bench or sitting in the doorway of a vacant building...the same people that we find ourselves "extremely busy"...too busy to make eye contact with...when they are walking in our direction.  Lee Jeffries has taken pictures of homeless men and women in New York City, Las Vegas, London, Paris, Rome and Los Angeles.  He not only photographs them, he also interviews them and hears their stories.  You can not look at these photographs and not be moved.  LOVE, LOVE LOVE.
