What is life without purpose, what do we then live for? Purpose gives us meaning, it gives us something to wake up to and fall asleep thinking about, it fulfils hours, days and years, without purpose are we nothing?
Purpose is easily lost, it gets tugged at and unravelled unknowingly, leaving you feeling empty and alone, even when you’re surround by life. Without it, the world is a dark and meaningless void that holds little appeal. Everyday beauty slowly vanishes, inner strength becomes weak and your relevance fades, but hope is never completely lost.
Lee Jeffries photography manages to capture the very soul of the homeless, almost as though you can feel everything they’ve had to endure. Purpose lost, purpose found maybe, but all with a beauty of self found in even the hardest of lives. Photographs that prove hope remains in us all if we truly want it.
