Portraits of the homeless in L.A.

New Zealand-based graphic designer Michael Pharaoh captured these stirring photos while traveling in the U.S. on a recent trip. Pharaoh describes his work on his Behance page:
"I was recently on holiday in America and visited Hollywood, I thought this would be a good opportunity to exercise my photography skills. I decided to walk around for a couple of days to how many photos I could take of all of the homeless people. It was fascinating to me because we don't have the same plethora of homeless people as L.A. It was interesting to hear all of their stories and how they came to live on the streets. This project was both a sad yet humbling one."
