Ester Jove Soligue’s compelling photos

Union City Homeless Encampment PhotosEster Jove Soligue’s compelling photographs of Union City’s Cliffside homeless encampment were featured on The New York Times website on December 12, 2011.

At this time of year, when many of us celebrate the holidays in the comfort of our homes, it is chilling to see pictures of some of the 25 “residents” of the encampment, which is just on the other side of New York City.

One of the photo subjects has lived there outside in the elements for 14 years and another is 68 years old. Soligue got to know these homeless individuals and documents their lives through photographs.
