Waifs, homeless, derelicts, almsmen, others, forgottens, outcasts, unwanteds… The Hotel of Waifs; a temporary resting place far from home, an amusement in a pale fun fair, an enthusiastic trip on roundabout ways of soul.
The Hotel of Waifs is a lovingly humane reflection on the hopes and sorrows of those living on the margins. Giving voice to the homeless without ever victimizing his subjects, Rıdvan Karaman crafts empathic portraits that find unexpected wisdom where few think to look.
