From PCN’s website, Notions of Home speaks to the complex realities of what home means for each individual, within our city, and in America today. “Home” encompasses a sense of identity that could be formed by blood, tribe, race, sexual orientation, gender, religion, or statehood; a geographic environment; a physical structure; our planet, and so much more. As many in our city face a scarcity of affordable living, or a change in paperwork and policies affecting their ability to call a place home, we look to photography to do what it does best: engage, reveal, provoke, and elucidate various viewpoints on this topic.
