Beauty on the Street

During summer 2002, I was on a three-month visit at the Open Door Community as a resident volunteer. Gladys Rustay, a Partner at the Open Door, suggested that I work on a project to show natural beauty as seen by those who live and sleep on the streets of Atlanta.  

Beauty is very much in the eye of the beholder, especially when you carry your home in a garbage sack through the hot and humid sidewalks of Atlanta. Everyday things, even trash, can take a whole new meaning if your survival may depend on them. Natural things, plants and animals can become your friends when mainstream human company is denied to you.
