Canon Master Guy Sebastian Captures Human Homelessness In Los Angeles

Canon Master Guy Sebastian walked through Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles to capture the humanity behind homelessness: Guy meets three of LA’s street people, and celebrates their character through three portrait photographs – their creativity, smile and majesty – regardless of whether they have a roof over their head.

Says Guy Sebastian:

I try to photograph humanity, powerful images that reflect the stories in people’s faces.


The toughest thing about these portraits is that I don’t want to illustrate doom and gloom, or someone that is down and out. I want someone to look at these faces and wonder — not judge. It’s important.

People like that make my day. Meeting people and hearing their stories, looking at their faces, a shot like that can show so much without having to ask. There is always that one picture you get excited about.

Guy Sebastian’s work was done for the #CanonShine photography movement to show to millions of people what matters through images:
