Creative Loafing Charlotte gave me this assignment in April of 2013. “We are doing an article on homelessness, do you want it?” My reply ”YES.” So I began going to Urban Ministry Center to talk to people. I met this man, Issac Ray Dunn, 63. He had been living on the streets here in Charlotte, NC for 4 months. He allowed me to photograph him.

What can we do? Support awareness is what Creative Loafing Charlotte did for this cover article in May 2013. Please read at
