Meet Alton

Meet Alton, a homeless guy I met on Fremont Street, downtown.

I learned a lot about Alton during our chat before I took his $2 portrait. Alton used to train animals (and had a dog with him), including "ligers" and even an albino cobra.

He's from South Carolina, and having a rough go of it. He's looking for work as a cook. Go, Alton. Find out more about the $2 Portrait Project.

I love that you find out their stories and post them. I always feel for these people that I see, and help if I can. I appreciate you putting a life to these faces. I think it makes people more compassionate.
