Faces of the forgotten: Photographer Lee Jeffries puts homeless in limelight

Lee Jeffries started taking snaps of homeless people on a visit to London in 2008. Since then, the British accountant has captured the faces of the forgotten, from Rome to New York.

His haunting set of black and white portraits of people living on the streets is currently on exhibit at the Yellow Korner gallery here in Paris. Eight of the photographs were sold at auction, with the proceeds of over 20,000 euros going to a French homeless charity. We caught up with the amateur photographer and asked him what else people can do to help those living on the streets.

Also on today’s show: we take you on a high-speed chase through Bond history, as the rides of the iconic British spy go on display at the London Film Museum.

Plus, we find out why Louis de Funès is widely considered France’s favourite comedian, as an exhibition celebrating his life opens here in Paris for the 100th anniversary of his birth.
