Photos: A Portrait of Denver's Homeless

When the Denver Police Department sent officers to raid an encampment of tiny homes at Sustainability Park last October, "something in me snapped," says photographer Paula Bard.

"I began walking those streets where the homeless are trying to survive, photographing the faces of those my city has abandoned."

The result is Bard's portrait of Denver's homeless that we're sharing in conjunction with Chris Walker's current story, "Is Denver Going for a Clean Sweep of the City's Homeless?"
