Manchester based Lee Jeffries had a chance meeting with a young homeless girl in the streets of London in 2008 it changed his artistic approach forever. Lee Jeffries recalls that, initially, he had take a distant photo a young homeless girl huddled in a sleeping bag. Jeffries say the girl and spotted him and although his first reaction was to run something made him stay and chat with the girl. His perception about the homeless completely changed. They become the subject of his art.

All the models in his photographs are homeless people that he has met in Europe & the United States: Situations arose, and he makes an effort to learn to get to know each of the subjects before asking their permission to do their portrait.
