Picturing Home Online Exhibition

Home is both a place and a state of mind. It can be comforting or challenging, personal or communal, but always evocative. For many of us the idea and reality of home is changing. Our schedules, our relationships and the way we interact with our family and neighbors are all being reinvented. This competition sought to illustrate how the home experience is evolving as we adapt and change during this unique time in history. The juror was Nancy Borowick, an internationally renowned photographer, author, teacher and speaker.

Juror Statement: Some of the most challenging images to make are the ones closest to home. During this time of pandemic and quarantine, the camera has been an outlet and a lens through which to explore this unique time in our lives where the world has become much smaller and defined. When I think about home, I think about memory, identity, connection, isolation, and reflection and I saw powerful examples of these themes in the many powerful images I had the honor of judging in this competition.  –Nancy Borowick

Join us for the online opening reception on Saturday, July 18 at 11am CDT via Zoom. Juror Nancy Borowick will be in attendance and will speak about the winning photographs and why she selected them for this exhibition. This reception is free and open to all!

We strongly believe that photographs deserve to exist in real life, so we’re also creating an exhibition catalog that will feature all of the selected images from the Picturing Home competition. Exhibition catalogs will be available for purchase soon. Stay tuned!
