Home as a state of mind

What and where is home? Atlanta photographer Don Chambers’ portraits of the homeless show faces filled with a sense of belonging despite their lack of an address. “I wanted to do dignified portraits of these folks in environments that they were familiar with, rather than shoot them in a studio or in a shelter,” says Chambers, who won third prize in the “Picturing Home” juried photo exhibit, on display at Emory through Jan. 29.

You can also view the winning photographs online in the Journal of Family Life, published by the Emory Center on Myth and Ritual in American Life (MARIAL).
