A selection of color portraits from my archives of men on NYC streets experiencing homelessness

I have spoken with some of these men (as with many of the people I take portraits of) in depth, sometimes chatting for brief periods and often sitting with and sharing for hours. I have multiple portraits of many as well taken on different days/ at various chance meetings. And the many who I’ve been blessed to meet who didn’t want their portrait taken or who I didn’t want to ask for one- those connections too are in my memory and heart.♥

Your my soulmate. With whom I had an immediate connection the moment we met. A connection so strong that we are drawn to each other in a way I have never experienced before. Our love with time has become strong and I begin to doubt that I ever truly loved anyone before. We understand and connect with with each other in every way and on every level which brings a sense of peace, calmness and happiness when I’m around you. And when we are apart my heart aches for you in a way that I’ve never felt before. I love you and want to be with you till the end of time.
One of the most spiritual things you can do is embrace your humanity. Connect with those around you today. Say, “I love you”, “I’m sorry”, “I appreciate you”, “I’m proud of you”…whatever you’re feeling. Send random texts, write a cute note, embrace your truth and share it…cause a smile today for someone else…and give plenty of hugs.
