Mary lives in a shelter in Durham, North Carolina. Asking her if it would be ok to take her photo felt invasive and even exploitive. Although her manner is gentle and kind, she has battled demons and endured hardship. She told me that "after what she had been through, having her photo taken was not difficult." I wonder if I would have been able to do the same if I were her.
