Weather-beaten, ignored, humiliated: Photographer spends a month taking shots of the homeless in New Jersey's affluent Cape May, who struggle to survive just meters from million-dollar houses and yachts

The powerful black and white pictures were captured by American photographer Donato DiCamillo, 50.

The pictures offer an insight into the hardships and struggles of those left to sleep rough in the affluent city.

Mr Di Camillo spent a month in the city trying to document the lives of rough sleepers with care and dignity.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These are heartbreakingly beautiful images; and as I look at these portraits, I have to wonder; why is there no place for them here?!?

It appears that we are spending a great deal of money here in the US for social services; but why can't this money reach these people in some tangible form?!?

Something is really, abysmally wrong with a system which cannot help the most fragile members of our society.
