ALEX AND CHRIS KIENER ARE TWIN BROTHERS AND HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS IN MIAMI,FLORIDA. THEY HAVE EMBARKED ON A PHOTO-JOURNALISTIC JOURNEY TO CAPTURE THE REALITY OF HOMELESSNESS IN THEIR CITY TO CREATE PUBLIC AWARENESS.
Their images are intended to bring individuals experiencing homelessness out of the shadows of the underpasses, and show faces of people that could be our brothers, sisters, fathers, or mothers. They hope their portraits can evoke an emotional response in viewers, helping them realize the humanity of these faces that is contrasted so starkly by the inhumanity of their living conditions. THEY HAVE AND CONTINUE TO COOPERATE WITH MIAMI COALITION FOR THE HOMELESS, CAMILLUS HOUSE, MIAMI, FLORIDA INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY -DEPARTMENT OF ARCHITECTURE AND ART, AND NATIONAL COALITION FOR THE HOMELESS. for more visit : www.artishomeless.com
