Homeless Women

In the 1980’s, with a growing number of homeless women on the streets of Los Angeles, Mother Art
became concerned. We interviewed and photographed women in order to share their stories.  The
women we met were all staying in a homeless shelter in Los Angeles.  In 1984, we created an
installation that combined photographs, text and floor painting. 

We also produced a photographic series with the text of each woman’s story told in her own words.
