Homeless people portraits minus the stereotype

Photographer Rosie Holtom uses positive imagery instead of the usual poverty porn in her photographs featuring homeless individuals. A long-time volunteer at a local homeless shelter in London, Holtom wanted to depict these people as ‘ordinary’ and without the stereotype we usually associate with homeless people. Through these simple but powerful images, we see that women who have escaped from sex trafficking, or men victimized by horrible landlords, are just like you and me.
