For his new project The Prince and the Pauper, San Francisco-based photographer Horia Manolache connected with homeless people, learned their stories, and shot two portraits of each of them: the first shows them as they are now, and the second portrait shows them in the life or career they had once dreamed about.

After meeting his subjects and getting to know them, Manolache invited them to a portrait session in a studio set up in a hotel room. Manolache’s wife gave haircuts and applied makeup for the “dream” portraits, and the props and outfits were rented or purchased from eBay and Amazon.
