In February 2021, I had the unique and eye-opening opportunity to visit a growing homeless camp in the LaVilla neighborhood of downtown Jacksonville, FL USA. From February 3rd until March 9th, I listened, observed, developed relationships, and documented the wide range of individuals who converged at the camp. Homelessness is a very complex global issue made worse by the COVID-19 pandemic.
