The exhibition curators invited 13 photographers--some artists, some photojournalists--to meet homeless people in the subjects' makeshift dwelling places and in various forms of interim and permanent housing.

Traveling through America's cities, the photographers recorded homelessness not as general social condition or charge political issue, but as a personal predicament with which real men and women grapple. From Los Angeles to New York, these artists documented homelessness and its solutions with compassionate and incisive eyes.

"This project seeks to convey a contemporary and fresh look at those who are homeless in light of solutions that have been pioneered over the past decade," says Jane Siena, exhibition co-curator. "With this outstanding group of photographers, all of whom bring their own styles and perspectives to the project, we set out to break stereotype, to humanize the issue, and to tell stories of real-life people facing real-life problems. We are building on a long tradition of socially-focused art that blends our objective and subjective understandings of life around us."

Patricia D. Richards solo exhibition of COLLECTIVE MEMORIES is a compilation of 100 years of familial imagery made or saved by the women in her family. The images show how much has changed, and at the same time, stayed the same with the passage of time. Each piece has a vintage print coupled with one of Richard's that bears an uncanny resemblance-all taken without distinct knowledge of the preceding work and found accidentally following the death of her 101 year old Grandmother.

A SHOT IN THE DARK - Night photographs by Larry Miller, Lynne Saville and JILL WATERMAN

Jill Waterman photographs rural and suburban locales, capturing the movement of orbiting stars, rising moons and passing planes. Waterman records reality, but also captures something invisible to the human eye - forces of cosmic energy and the rotation of the earth. Her photographs are infused with moonlight and ambient light, resulting in ethereal landscapes that pulsate with saturated color.
