HOUSTON, TX – When we look at Houston’s skyline, we probably don’t see or even think about the homeless men and women who live in the streets.  A new exhibit sponsored by “Home Aid Houston” displayed at a corporate building downtown, reminds us of the experiences, suffering and point of view of those who might pass unnoticed to many.

“Picture This” distributes disposable cameras to homeless individuals working with agencies in and around the city. For five days they photograph their daily lives, focusing on life’s challenges, their environment and anything that is important to them.

The goal of the exhibit is to share with the public photos that show the homeless perspective of living in deep poverty.
