One of the aspects of Kicked Out that people most frequently comment on are the haunting photographs interspersed within the anthology. They were taken by NYC based photographer Samantha Box, and I’m thrilled that today her work was featured on TIME Magazine’s LightBox photography spotlight! Sam is an incredible photographer who captures the beauty and grittiness ever-present in the lives of queer homeless youth in NYC. It’s a reality that many would rather not see, but Sam brings folks onto the streets, into the homeless shelters, and shows lives of kids challenging audiences to dare look away.
