Seattle-based architect, photo-journalist and community activist architect Rex Hohlbein built his nonprofit, Facing Homelessness, on the back of a Facebook page called ‘Homeless in Seattle’. The page shares true stories of homelessness and has amassed more than 16,000 followers. Hohlbein will present an exhibition of his photographs at the Global Street Paper Summit in Seattle on 22 June. He speaks to Summit co-hosts Real Change about how his work grew from a personal Facebook project to a full nonprofit that works to challenge negative perceptions of homelessness. (2450 Words) - By Aaron Burkhalter
