Home: Where I Live
January 18 - February 16, 2019
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.
