A few years ago, I used to follow a photo blog called The Snowsuit Effort. It featured photographs of the faces of street people; most lived in Detroit, as I recall. And then it stopped, without explanation, on February 5, 2007.
The web site still exists though. Have a look at these images. Try starting here with the last one and working your way backward. Each one is accompanied by a brief biographical note.
Not all information about emotions has to be put into words. Sometimes it is best to be silent and watchful.
These are real people.
These faces speak the truth about their lives.
