Homeless man Jim Wolf has had the dubious honour of being part of an art project to demonstrate what a difference a bit of a makeover can make.

The 54-year-old US army veteran has found himself homeless and suffering from alcoholism, but by the end of this timelapse video, he is transformed.

Producer Patrick Cameron admitted that Wolf’s problems are not behind him. ‘This doesn’t show that he is fixed, that he is in recovery, that he is going to stay cleaned up,’ he said.

‘But he was for a moment and that could lead to something else.’

What do you think – valuable social statement, or exploitation of a homeless man for art?
