About Lee


Lee Jeffries career began as a sports photographer, capturing the beautiful game of football in Manchester, UK. Then a chance meeting with a homeless woman living in the streets of London changed his life forever. He has since dedicated himself to capturing gripping portraits of the disenfranchised.

The models in his photographs are homeless people that he has met in Europe and in the United States.

He explains his process by saying, “I don’t want to exploit these people or steal photographs of them like so many other photographers who had seen the homeless as an easy target. In an effort to make intimate portraits, I try to connect with each person on an individual basis first.”
