Face of Homelessness in Dallas, Texas
Dr. Robert Hart
“Face of homelessness in Dallas” is a creative, research‐based project. Its findings are based on one‐on‐one interviews with homeless people and people working with them. I worked frequently with The Stewpot in Dallas, TX on this project. The Stewpot is an organization focused on issues of homelessness and has been in existence since 1975. I took portraits of homeless people and chose the stories that touched me the most for this publication. Some of their names have been changed upon request of my subjects. I also made a video for The Stewpot organization, which is expanding its operations to tackle the problem of homelessness more efficiently. This project made me realize the complexity of the problem of homelessness, that the homeless population are not what others call “lazy,” but in fact need money but they do need a second chance.
