This is Chino

Another installment of the Invisible Ones of Washington, DC

This is Chino

This is Chino

I met Chino on 14th Street, just South of Logan Circle in Washington, DC. He was camped out in a building alcove surrounded by a large pile of clothing, blankets and other items he had collected. He doesn’t have much to say other than he has been on the street for a number of years and gets by on the kindness of others. I told him about the Invisible Ones project and he agreed to this photograph in exchange for a monetary contribution. If you see Chino or another person living on the streets without shelter, stop and have a conversation. Showing a little humanity toward someone who feels invisible will make you both feel better.
