We Aren't Locked Down, We Are Locked Out: A Homeless Man's Chronicle of Life During A Pandemic
Los Angeles has the largest unsheltered population in America. When California went into lockdown the lives of the homeless community in the county were completely upended. Homeless photographer Bumdog Torres lives this reality everyday.
"We aren't locked down, we are locked out. Locked out of libraries, McDonald's, Starbucks, community centers, gyms, you name it. We all used to hang out at this Coffee Bean, charging our stuff and using the internet. Now we have to find one place to hang out, another place where we can charge our stuff, ANOTHER place to get internet."
"People are told to stay home and not go anywhere. And if you don't have a home, stay where you are and die. And try not to cough on anyone in the process."
