'Homeless Mo' captures life on the streets

NEED TO KNOW
  • A homeless man who asked a stranger for some cigarettes, ended up getting a camera instead
  • He now takes people inside the homeless experience through the device

It all started when a homeless man name Mo asked a stranger to buy him some cigarettes.

That stranger, Ryan Hupfer, did a whole lot more than that. He got to know Mo and ended up giving him a camera to document his day-to-day struggles. The chance encounter has not only changed Mo’s life -- it’s changing how many people view the homeless experience.
