Photographer James Florio created the series Homeless in Orlando.  Alternating between slides of text and black and white photographs.  The series captures the home and life of a homeless couple, Robert and Heather.  Robert and Heather live in the woods of Orlando, Florida.  The words and images describe the events that led to their home among the urban forests of the über-developed tourist hub.

The series feels much more like a film with its strong and touching narrative.  Using a minimal amount of words and elegant photographs, Florio presents Robert and Heather in a way that is surprisingly emotionally engaging.  He shows how typically simple tasks such as taking a shower, can become absurdly challenging.  Homeless in Orlando provides a rare insight and is especially affecting.  The rest of the Robert and Heather’s story unfolds after the jump.  You’ll want to see it through to the last image.
