Diamonds in the Rough Series

On May 1st 2016 I set out to discover a more alternative style of life that doesn't get much attention. People group other people from childhood. From school, sports, neighbourhoods, ethnicity, gender, and so on. This is no different in the world of the "homeless".

Anyone seen walking down the highway with a thumb out or carrying a backpack is placed in the same category as the guy suffering mental health issues on the corner begging for change. This is simply not true and yes I realize that last part was paradoxical assumption on my part.

I have met some of the most interesting people roaming the backroads of our country. Some were just plain filthy and some were filthy rich. There are individuals who prefer to be alone and others that travel in groups. Reasons vary from abuse at home, curiosity, adventure, and some are on a mission from God himself.

This series will be presented in multiple galleries in the USA and UK. We will list them as the dates and locations become available.
