Home: Where I Live

January 18 - February 16, 2018

Home explores the unique perspective of Dothan and Wiregrass area citizens that are either homeless or housing insecure. Artists were each given a disposable camera in order to capture scenes in their everyday lives – streetscapes, community organizations, abandoned properties, and their community. What resulted is an intimate look at both the hardships that these artists face, as well as the bright moments they find — whether that be an organization that might help them find food or shelter or in the friendship they share with a neighbor.

This project, inspired by Through Our Eyes, a project which originated in Spartanburg, South Carolina, serves to shine a light on the growing number of people that find themselves without a place to call their own. These photos represent what Home looks like to them.

This exhibition was organized in partnership with The Harbor, which serves all who are in need, physically and spiritually.
