"Mentoring for Through the Eyes of the Homeless has been a rare opportunity for me to connect with New York City's homeless and gain new insights into some misconceptions. 

It's been a moving experience and I've increased my compassion for the homeless because of the inspired Photography we're producing together.

It's easy as a New Yorker to not understand and become frustrated with some street people, but most of the homeless are seeking shelter and work and don't actually want to be homeless on the street.

Having the chance to mentor a well-groomed older gentleman named Carl was particularly inspiring. His drive to contribute to society and capture authenticity made his story unique and his artistic eye was that of an advanced student."
