Homeless Artist Herbert Freeman


The Art of Herbert Freeman

directed by

Giovanni Santacroce

This short documentary is a tribute to the homeless artist Herbert Freeman, who has been selling his art in downtown Orlando, Florida for over a decade. I took away two things from watching it. A true artist can be the richest person in the world. And second, what Freeman says about solitude: “I like to have solitude to see what I’m really doing—and that means a lot.” Watching this video has left a deep impression on me. After the video, check out Freeman’s blog and Flickr stream.
