The Unaddressed (2009)

The Unaddressed focuses on the under-housed, giving voice to their personal opinions. By photographing subjects holding a cardboard sign that announces their concerns, the project challenges preconceived notions of homelessness. Working against the minimal exchange between the homeless and passers-by, the images use the trope of the panhandling sign to disclose messages usually ignored or unspoken. The Unaddressed was a public installation at the 2009 Contact Photography Festival and was commissioned by the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) as part of Housepaint II: Shelter.
