Poverty is present when someone lacks the means to satisfy their basic needs. Sadly, poverty itself is seen all too often walking down the streets of Houston. I see the same two or three homeless people on my daily route from home to work, and back again. The struggles and hardships that these people face every day are unreal.

Native Houstonian Photographer Ben Tecumseh DeSoto has created a beautiful photographic exhibit that consists of a collection of photos that allow a closer view inside the daily lives of homeless and poverty stricken people all around Houston.

The photos in this exhibit highlight DeSoto’s work as a journalist– he worked at the Houston Chronicle for 25 years– and also DeSoto’s talent as an artist.

This exhibit will debut with its opening night on Thursday, July 26, from 6-9PM, hosted at the Nave Museum. This museum is located in the pseudo-conservative city of Victoria, Texas, which is 120 miles from downtown Houston. The exhibit will continue the entirety of that weekend– Friday, July 27 until Sunday, July 29, 12-4PM.
