Daytona Times photojournalist Duane C. Fernandez Sr. has spent months capturing images of the homeless in Volusia County.
Most recently, he followed them as they left Manatee Island Park, a Daytona Beach site with public restrooms where many gathered at night to sleep. When it was shut down, he was there when they set up at the Volusia County Administration Center. And this week, the Salvation Army became a temporary home for some of the area’s homeless.
Fernandez also was present when various meetings with elected officials and local leaders have focused on solutions to curb the homeless issue around Daytona Beach and in Volusia County.
