No end in sight for "Beyond the Edge of the Fields".

January 27, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

Over a year ago I started a project of photographing people who are normally ignored and considered off the grid, the homeless. This project entitled Beyond the Edge of the Fields was inspired by studying the works of famous and legendary street photographers from days past.  Although, this project has no real end in sight, I hope to display these very moving photographs in a public forum in 2018.

During the process of repeated visits to these homeless individuals, I began to learn many things about them. Including, how they got to this point in their life, what their dreams were when they were young. What demons have followed them throughout their lives and what their goals and inspirations are for their future.

My visits began to increase to once or twice a week. Taking them food, clothing and necessities in which for them to have some sort of decent existence. The real problem can hardly be remedied by one individual. However, one individual can help in making it possible for a person to have hope to make it through another day, another week and a month to ultimately get the proper help they need to change their lives.

My circle of homeless friends grew in number, making it very difficult for me to properly divide up my time and expenses to continue on my journey. Therefore, I reached out to my personal circle of friends and coworkers for help. With an overwhelming response I have learned what huge hearts my friends and people in the Winston Salem community have.
