Close to Home


The seven artists in this exhibition use photography to explore different notions about home as a physical place with deep emotional connections. In doing so they show us an extraordinary range of feelings toward home: tenderness, anxiety, love, and heartache. Perhaps photography is the ideal medium to express these feelings about home because of its ability to depict complicated things, in the most straightforward way, like a family portrait. The exhibition is organized by David Oresick, Executive Director, Silver Eye Center for Photography, and Dylan Vitone, Associate Professor, Carnegie Mellon University School of Design, and Silver Eye board member.
