Facing Homelessness / Rex Hohlbein

“I began the Facebook page ‘Homeless in Seattle’ in March of 2011 with the simple thought of telling something beautiful about each person living on the street.  Each story included a dignified portrait asking the viewer to see the person rather than the issue of homelessness. The hope was to re-brand homelessness in a way that allowed us to see the beauty we all have.” – Rex Hohlbein

Outside City Hall would like to thank Rex for generously allowing us to post some of his extraordinary portraits of the homeless on our streets.  We’ve included several of his photos in stories for our series written by Rebekah Demirel and Bill Kirlin-Hackett. Below is a gallery of additional photos he allowed us to post also giving real meaning and depth to the lives of those on our street experiencing homelessness.  Rex can be reached at: https://www.facebook.com/HomelessInSeattle/ and https://www.instagram.com/facinghomelessness/
