Yesterday, Dooce tweeted a link to an amazing photo series. I am shamelessly crying in my office right now.
18 years ago, Darcy Padilla photographed a woman, Julie Baird, whom she met in the lobby of a hotel for the homeless. Throughout the years, she photographed Julie as she dealt with abusive boyfriends, AIDS, and drug addiction. Padilla's series gives us a glimpse into a world that is so often hidden from view. It's heartbreaking and raw.
