A Morgan Hill resident and photographer shared how she is bringing to light the face of homelessness in the South Valley at a Jan. 12 reception at the Gilroy Center for the Arts.

A storyteller behind the camera, Kirti Bassendine, who splits her time between Morgan Hill and San Benito County, took to the streets to document the lives of homeless residents living in poverty.

Many who have been stricken with poverty, Bassendine said, are just ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances.

Bassendine’s message is that everyone deserves a second chance.
