Damian Wampler challenges us with portraits of homeless men living in New York City. The series is both a social commentary and a character study, capturing the reality of poverty and the graphic elements of street life. Both mezmerising and compelling, faces of these men depict pride, desperation, hopelessness and defiance. Damian is a current student in the MPS digital photography program.
