Homeless by Chan Kwok Hung

With news released of a debut album on the 13th June, Marcus Foster is someone I’d like to feature. The album, ‘Nameless Path‘, promises to worth the wait from what I’ve heard so far. To be honest, half the time I haven’t got a clue what he’s singing, but it sounds great! There’s an acquired darkness to his voice that has similarities to Tom Waits, which you can hear in ‘Circle In The Square.’ To launch the record, he will play two nights at London’s Barfly on the 13th and 14th June, so visit his sites to grab some cheap tickets before he becomes massive (and expensive)!

Homeless by Chan Kwok Hung is a powerful image I’ve been wanting to use for quite a while, but the right song just hasn’t turned up until now. The tragedy in the photograph is suited so well to the music; I didn’t need much else of an excuse to use it. About the image, Chan says:

“Taken in Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, two little children living with their grandmother on the street nearby the junk yard, everyday in the evening, they look for some useful thing inside the junk yard they can resell for money, but if they found nothing, they would be punished seriously!”

It’s a heartbreaking reality you wouldn’t wish on anyone, but it takes photographers like Chan to bring something like this to the forefront of our minds. He has been hailed by many competitions for his other photography, especially within action and sports genres, so visit the rest of his work via links below…
