I LEFT MY COAT BEHIND
The number of homeless people in the Netherlands has doubled in the past ten years, including an increasing group of young people. Even though there is more insight into this group nowadays, little seems to change. The modern homeless youth do not stand out nor they are visually recognisable; they move among us without anyone noticing them. During my photographic process, I research the following questions: What has caused these youth to lose their homes and how will this affect their lives? How can these young people manage under such circumstances and how can the taboo be broken around this theme?
