DC Home Project Website Launch

I am pleased to announce the launch of the dcHome Project website.  This project is a collaboration between myself and 8 other photographers working to answer the question: What is Home?  We explored apartments, favorite paths, a job, and a childhood home; we photographed for a total of ten days over about 7 months, in a variety of environments, using a number of formats.  Three photographers shot each home at once, and each focused on and captured different aspects of each home.  For example, I found myself photographing the most familiar objects–a radiator, a soapdish, a windowframe–and isolating them from their context to overcome the temptation to overlook them.

The participating photographers are a mix of amateur and professional photographers living in D.C.: Mia C.Kira MarcheneseKristin MoeTravis Muir,Aziza MurrayEmma NormanGracy ObuchowiczAlex Pergament, and Colin Winterbottom.  We are grateful for the sponsorship of the D.C. Commision on the Arts and Humanities through the Young Artists Program Grant, Dodge-Chrome and ProPhoto.

I hope you enjoy viewing these photos as much as we enjoyed making them, and that they encourage you to question what Home is to you.

Best wishes,
Alex Pergament and the dcHome Project team
