From February 15th to March 26th, the Abbey hosts in its secular walls the photo exhibition Portraits of Lee Jeffries. The famous British artist exhibits 32 large format black and white photos of homeless people.
From sportsmen to homeless people
It was a striking meeting with a homeless girl in the streets of London that has changed the destiny and artistic approach of Lee Jeffries. Since then, the homeless have become the main subject of this former photographer of sports events now specialized in street photography.
Lee Jeffries uses black and white exclusively. The game with shadows and lights transcends the look and faces of his models. A way for the artist to convey to the viewer the experiences and emotions of homeless people with whom he has established a relationship of trust.
The meaning of a passion
Lee Jeffries uses his art to draw our attention to the homeless and raise money to help them. The passion of this photographer of humanity has become the mission of his life.
