If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter you already know of my ongoing photo project “The Invisible Ones” of Washington, DC. There are occasions such as those shown in these images when I am simply appalled by how oblivious and insensitive people have become to those living without shelter on the streets of my city. This is a busy intersection at 5th & F Streets, NW, just steps from a METRO station, and the DC Courthouse complex. I could have taken dozens of photos showing passersby treating this women as though she was a piece of trash on the sidewalk. Walking by without even a look or a moments pause. This is what motivates me to continue to try and raise awareness with the Invisible Ones photo project. For the record, I did approach this woman. She was awake and accepted a bottle of water from me. She would not speak to me. So I moved on. This brief human-to-human contact took all of 15 seconds. I’m guessing anyone can spare that amount of time.
