A series of photographs taken between 2005 - 2012,
documenting homeless queer and transgender youth in New York City
Since 2005, Samantha Box has dedicated herself to documenting New York City�s community of homeless lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) youth.
�The young people that I photograph are some of the most resilient people that I have ever met: despite facing societal animosity of homo- and transphobia, and the burden of a broken system that conspires to keep them homeless. They continuously work for a future where their talents and intellect can be used, where they have a home, a family and a life of stability.� - Samantha Box on Time/Lightbox, June 12, 2012
