‘homelessness in new york city’ is a four part poster series by brazilian graphic designer vitor de carvalho. completed during his time at parsons, the project approaches social, cultural, and political issues that surround homelessness in contemporary NYC. each provides a fragment of a much larger story, hopefully peeking the interest of viewers.
facts, and myths, were researched and compiled from the coalition for the homeless, and used to create headlines for each of the four prints. selected text was screen-printed on top of the new york times’ real estate section, and then dispersed at random in the city. carvalho’s decision to overlay is a reaction to the invisible presence of the paper, and as a medium that explicitly exposes the pageantry and absurdity of new york’s real estate bubble.
each print measures 22×24”
