Portraits of Home

Families in Search of Shelter in Greater Minnesota

The personal impact that the lack of affordable housing has on the lives of people in Minnesota is often unmentioned and hidden.

Through “Portraits of Home,” an art exhibit sponsored by Greater Minnesota Housing Fund, a team of six photographers has captured how families in greater Minnesota struggle with poor housing conditions, the lack of a home and managing life with few resources.

The stories represented by these images remind all of us that we must do more so that all Minnesotans have the opportunity to thrive in safe, decent and affordable homes.

Listen to Minnesota Public Radio’s Dominic Papatola interviews George Slade, “Portraits of Home” exhibit curator, on the traveling exhibit, photography, and social art and political activism on State of the Arts (May, 2005).
