You see them every day in Austin—on street corners, walking medians and asking for money to survive.
Photographer Matt Rainwaters hopes people will start to see Austin's homeless through a new lens, and that it could happen to anyone.
"When I was photographing this project, my goal was really to show the humanity of these folks and to create the foundation of understanding that our financial situations are fragile, and short of some medical bills or car trouble, we could be in the exact same situation," Rainwaters said.
The collection is called Struggle: The Other Faces of the Texas Economic Miracle as part of the United Way's 90th anniversary celebration.
The portraits are displayed at the Travis County Commissioners Court. Click here for more information.
