Eye on Texas: Charlotte Moore


A version of this story ran in the March / April 2019 issue.

Charlotte Moore

I met Montana in Corpus Christi when I stopped to take some pictures in a field of flowers next to a strip mall. He introduced himself and explained that he lived in a corner behind the mall. We walked to his makeshift home and talked a bit; I promised to send this photo to his sister. According to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, more than 25,000 Texans were homeless on a single night in January 2018.
