Sunny Miller's Portraits of Philadelphia's Homeless Inspire Goodwill Efforts Across the Country


Sunny Miller

The project started while I was working on a series of landscapes in Philly. While I was grabbing some lunch, a young manasked me if I’d give him money. I explained that I was a photographer and asked if he’d pose for me. While I was snapping away, he told me his story. After that, I was compelled to do more.

“Many of those I shot are gripped by unbearable addiction, loss of family and mental illness. I share their photos through social media, with each person’s stated needs. It’s amazing to see the responses to an image; people from around the country have sent items. When I receive them, I pass them along to the person, along with a print of their image. I may not be solving their larger problems, but I hope I show them that there are people who hear and see their stories, and want to help.”
