Lost Angels

 

View the show from the mobile exhibition.

 

The emotional experience drew attention to the growing number of homeless neighbors in Seattle, one face at a time.

Over a cold November weekend the Mission partnered with acclaimed international photographer, Lee Jeffries, to create a powerful outdoor exhibit.

Lost Angels, a public mobile art exhibition, featured portraits of unsheltered men and women projected at massive-scale onto the facades of buildings and landmarks throughout Seattle neighborhoods. Accompanied by stories of the individuals featured, the entire experience drew attention to the growing number of homeless neighbors in Seattle, one face at a time.

For I was hungry and you gave me food,

I was a stranger and you welcomed me.
