I met a man named Polo while shooting on the streets in the summer of 2015. We ended up becoming friends and I have shot many portraits with him. He has shared his life story with me and I am hoping to turn it into a longer form photo project.
His life story is a harrowing one, one of crime and addiction, but he has turned his life around and is learning what it means to be happy. He has become an inspiration to me and I hope to make photos that will make him an inspiration to others.
Here are 3 of my favorite shots of him.
