Rita ~ A Portrait in Light & Darkness

September 2005 • Digital Giclee´ Print • 28”h x 112”w

“I was a homeless person for two and a half years. It was a hard task for me, and I faced very hard times…These women formed a very supportive group for me. I thank them very much. Please ladies out there, if you ever become homeless, find a support group quick…” ~ Rita


The act of creating order in my own life contrasted with Rita’s stories of a world where order was found on a bus depot bench, or in repetitive tasks preparing items for shipping at the “freak shop” novelty sex toys factory, employment she undertook while living in the bus shelter.
