Over 350 artists challenged the stereotypes attributed to homelessness by creating more than 400 portraits representing some of the 534 people Worthing Churches Homeless Projects work with in a twelve month period. They created these images from a brief, anonymous profile of a client drawing from details such as their hobbies and jobs.
