“In June 2015, I started a personal ongoing series of photographic essays casing lives of real people throughout several cities of the West coast of the United States. People like you and me, who had plans and dreams, but for whatever reason ended up in the streets or shelters.

The idea of the project is rather simple: I engage with them, I listen to their stories and share, whenever allowed, their pictures and written narrative of ours conversations. The project’s purpose is to bring awareness to the fine line that separates society and the homeless and hopefully break this massive social wall that makes them practically invisible for most of us.

Over the timespan of one year, Careful: Soul Inside gained its own gallery exibition and has been showedcase in a few local newspapers and television throughout the West Coast of the United States.”
