Lee Jeffries Faces of the Forgotten

Lee Jeffries’ Faces of the Forgotten

England-based photographer Lee Jeffries has transformed himself from an accountant and sports photographer into a fine arts photographer. His set of images of homeless and elderly people redefines the concept of black and white images.

Jeffries travels around capturing the homeless of east and west coast America including Los Angeles and New York, as well as Rome and Manchester. The photographs are then enhanced with software, primarily through dodge and burn, to develop the mood of the eyes. “It’s the eyes that attracted me to take the photograph in the first place and this is always the starting point for the emotional element of the image” – describes Jeffries.
