On the street

Some of you have heard about the project that i have been shooting with homeless guy Johan Theart. Well the project with him has turned into so much more than expected. Firstly Johan, who has been on the street for 8 years, is not homeless any more. A church called Westview Methodist Church decided to take him under their wing and gave him a place to stay. He is also working for them and sorting out his life at the same time. It is insane how much someone can change if given the opportunity. Well the project turned into something that started encompassing the whole neighborhood and with up to 200 homeless people sleeping in Wierdapark every night, i have started taking pics of other people as well. Here are two pics. One of Johan and another shot. As Johan changes i will keep shooting with him an hope to bring you a whole series some day in the future.
