Nowhere to Call Home: Volume Two
Photographs and Stories of People Experiencing Homelessness, Volume Two
by Leah Denbok and Tim Denbok

This book continues where my first book left off—with forty photographs and stories of people experiencing homelessness. It is a part of my ongoing mission, begun with volume one, to change the general public’s perception of those experiencing homelessness. So often, as I stated in my first book, they are viewed as subhuman creatures, or a lower order of being than human. Through my photographs and stories I am trying to humanize them, to help the general public see that, apart from the unfortunate circumstances in which these people find themselves, they are no different than you and I. I am heartened that, judging from the comments that my first book has received from people around the world, my work seems to be having this effect. All royalties from this book will be given to Home Horizon: Transitional Support Program.

I am only one But still I am one. I cannot do everything But still I can do something; And because I cannot do everything Let me not refuse to do the something that I can do. — Edward Everett This book is a perfect follow-up to Humanizing the Homeless, Volume One. Through these portraits and accompanying stories, Leah has made a real connection with an often-unseen population. — Paul Ryan, Director of Cafe Art (UK) These photos bring to life the beauty that is within each person and drives home the fact that each life is unique and important. — Carol Cohan-Morneau, Executive Director, Mission Services, Hamilton Leah has a way of turning a photograph into an in-depth look into a person’s soul. —Matte Black, Founder and CEO, Heroes in Black This magnificent photography project is an opportunity to, both, share and educate through pictures the voices and worldview of the homeless. — James Pasternak, Councillor, Ward 10, City of Toronto Leah’s photography is a real gift. By showing people experiencing homelessness as people, Leah makes it impossible for us to turn away—harder still to not act. — Tim Richter, President & CEO, Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness
