Lee Jeffries career began as a sports photographer, capturing the beautiful game of football where he lives in Manchester, U.K.. Then, one day, a chance meeting with a homeless woman living in the streets of London changed his life forever. He has since dedicated himself to capturing magnificent portraits of the disenfranchised, the less fortunate, the lost ones.
Shooting exclusively in black and white, Lee Jeffries’ 135+ pictures are incredibly powerful images. The majority are closeup portraits displaying unbelievable detail. The photos bring each person to life and by gazing into their eyes you may just catch a glimpse of their souls. There is power, pain, wisdom, knowledge and love reflected in each photo. All you have to do is look once and you will find yourself studying each shot with great intensity. Each time I look at them I find myself asking the same questions over and over. “What brought them to this place in their life?” and “What stories can each person tell?”
