Photographer Lee Jeffries’ documentation of the homeless began back in 2008, when he took a photo of a girl sleeping in a doorway in London.

This experience changed his life, and he now travels the world photographing homeless people and spending time listening to their stories.

Jeffries explained his process to Metro.co.uk, saying: “I’m “living” with these people for days, sometimes weeks and only when a mutual respect has been developed does the camera ever get used.”

These up close and personal portraits are the result of his efforts to engage with the homeless:
