    Tillman, A pretty basic gesture too, came away saddened & angry for not knowing what else I could do for him & all the others on the street.

    A young girl surrounded by bus station security & police in Huddersfield bus station today! I talked to this guy & asked why he was on the streets. He said he had lost his job, then couldn't afford to pay his mortgage. Then he was evicted!! UK 21st century. I gave him some money & as I was on my way to have a coffee with my wife I went & got him a piping hot soup & a sandwich. This was taken on a bitterly cold day in Huddersfield!! I asked if I could take his picture long before I got the soup etc & he said yes. Came away sad that this is happening all over the UK. He was pointing for his faithful dog to look at me whilst I took the shot, just thought I'd better mention that! Fuji XPro1 + XF 35mm f/1.4

  13. Honoring Lost Angels

    What can you give to a man who gives his everything to everyone else? A Flickr feature is just the beginning. In an intimate interview with Flickr, Lee Jeffries reveals a few photographic secrets, his striking motivation behind his exceptional portrait work, and his most recent project that will have you raiding your house for tissue boxes - guaranteed. Lee is a full-time accountant, father, and self-taught photographer living in the UK. Without using any more equipment than a handheld camera, his unique style can be coined as “spiritual iconography.” This humanist photographer travels the world engaging in rich discussions with homeless folk to capture an emotional connection intended to honor them by “giving their likeness a greater meaning.” What makes Jeffries a rarity is that it’s never been about the photographs for him. In fact, gaining fame or notoriety for the photography is among the last things he thinks about. “I have developed over the years. I have been doing this with the deepest empathy for the people I meet. I usually start with a respectful hello and the relationship moves on from there. I can be with a person for an hour, or more often longer. I immerse myself in the community. I become part of that community to the point where I am accepted there. I live, eat, and sleep there. My images come from the inside out not the outside in.” http://blog.flickr.net/en/2017/11/28/honoring-lost-angels https://www.flickr.com/photos/16536699@N07/
