Leonard Waldon is a Montclair hairstylist and owner of the Anjiru Hair Salon at 12 South Fullerton Avenue. In 2008, Waldon began taking a series of photographs of homeless men and women in and around Newark Penn Station. His special rapport with his subjects resulted in a beautiful and poignant series of portraits he calls "All the King's Men". The expressions in these portraits speaks volumes about the thousands of homeless men and women who make up a large part of our landscape. Waldon's moving and evocative images were displayed at the 18th Annual Wonderfully Made Art Exhibit in Morristown, NJ.
Waldon is currently working on other photographic projects focusing on the growing plight of the homeless. For further information contact Leonard Waldon at AnjiruGallery@gmail.com.
