The United States has long been a picture of wealth and progress for many. But the reality remains that a portion of the population are struggling, and the numbers are growing. Street photographers and documentary photographers have been working to raise awareness, but it remains a tricky subject to tackle for many of us, with the risk of stripping the homeless and the struggling of their dignity as human beings. But when you focus on individual and personal stories, such as the approach of Owen Kahn in his latest documentary project, it makes a more compelling case.
