Stories

 

Other narratives in the show include the equally touching and harrowing story of Ben White, a homeless man DeSoto followed. There are disturbing images of crack and heroin use, domestic abuse and homeless life on the street. One section of photos addresses city programs and initiatives to document and help those in need.

Like HBO's grossly underappreciated series The Wire, DeSoto is presenting subject matter that's hard to crack, initially, but once you connect with it, it becomes absorbing and rewarding. It's an ugly world, but it's worth getting lost in.
