Where others see only filth and destitution, Van Hoek discovers humanity : homeless people expressing themselves in outfits assembled from castoffs, and in makeshift homes with things they hold dear. The result is a unique portrait of a neighborhood that is changing rapidly.
"A vibrant community that demands to be seen and heard." Gale Holland in her introduction
