Portraits of the homeless. Lee Jeffries is a British street photographer. He photographed homeless people in England and all around the world. The first photo he made was an 18th year old girl in a sleeping bag on the street in London who shouted at him when he took a picture. He sat next to her and started a conversation. When asked about his work Lee Jeffries said: ‘I want people to look at my photographs and see the person, not the homeless person. I want them to see the humanity.’
