Photographer Justin Bettman embarked on his ongoing series known as The Bagel Project in 2011 by approaching homeless people on the streets of Los Angeles with an offering of bagels for their time. The young photographer, whose intention with this work is to "give a voice to the voiceless," would often start by purchasing a dozen or so bagels and roaming the streets for homeless people willing to participate in his personal project. To his surprise, Bettman found that the people he encountered were more interested in having company with whom they could hold a conversation than a bagel for sustenance.
