Johnson County, KS – Homeless: a photographic essay

Opening Reception: July 28th, 1 – 3 PM

Howard

Sharon has photographed and interviewed the homeless of Johnson County, Ks since 2014.  She started to document the homeless of Johnson County to dispel the perception that this wealthy county does not have a homeless population.  The images in this exhibition depict the face of the Johnson County Homeless.  Sharon takes this project a step further by giving her subjects the power to voice their personal story and the opportunity to write it in their own hand .  These personal stories are displayed next to their photographic likeness.  Throughout this work Sharon dispels the myth of “there are no homeless here (Johnson County)”.  I hope you will take the time to not only see the face but read their stories.
