Lee Jeffries lives in Manchester in the United Kingdom.His career began as a sports photographer, capturing the beautiful game of football.A casual meeting with a young homeless girl in the paths of London changes his artistic attitude forever. His recollections that, primarily, he had stolen a photo from this young homeless girl bunched in a sleeping bag.
He knew that the young girl had noticed him but his first reaction was to leave. He says that something made him stay and go and discuss with the girl. His perception about the homeless completely changes. They become the subject of his art. The models in his photographs are homeless people that he has met in Europe and in the United States: “Situations arose, and I made an effort to learn to get to know each of the subjects before asking their permission to do their portrait”.
From then onwards, his photographs portray his convictions and his compassion to the world. The work of Lee is a chain of portraits, most homeless people, which pursues to describe the history of each of these personalities. His method when portraying faces and his own touch on the pictures make Lee Jeffries a great photography illustrator. The awesome photographs are easy to understand and full of emotions!!!
