The Bench, A Homeless Love Story is a graphic novel inspired by the literary work of NYC Playwright, Robert Galinsky. It spring boards into visual explorations interweaving universal complexisites of the human experience, such as love, survival, aspirations, friendships, through the lens of the destitute and cast away. Homesleness is a global and national endemic, in New York alone we have experience the highest levels since the Great Depression in the 1930’s. This rise is evident as homeless seeking accomodations in shelters is 87 percent higher than ten years ago and as each night thousands of unsheltered homeless people sleep on New York City streets, in the subway system, and in other public spaces.
