Josiane Keller - Charlie painted and one-legged man
Charlie (21)

“I moved out at the age of 18 and moved to Portland, Oregon.
I’m 21 now and before I was on the streets at 16 to 17 as well as my whole life has been rocky. (…) 
But I wanted to experience a new life and to understand the world in , well, a new different eye (way of looking at things.) Yeah, it’s a hard life, but it can be great at times.
sleeping place depends if I have money for a hotel or if I don’t have money I sleep in door ways, my fiance looks after me, (…) money wise I sometimes find people that need work done like in the summer and in the winter I ask people for extra change. (…)

I hope to have a better life with my fiance than the streets and get married and settle down.”
