If Homeless People Looked Like This, Would We Still Ignore Them?

Rosie Holtom is a volunteer at a homeless shelter and a photographer. She decided to take shots of some of the homeless people she knew that would present them to the world as they actually are rather than how people think they are when they imagine the homeless.
