23. Home

“Home. That special place that knows us too well, that knows all our joys and sorrows. After these crazy elections – the place where I want to be. For those of us fortunate to have one, a sacred sanctuary where we get to build our lives and project our aspirations and dreams.”

— Mariana Salazar

Family Photography Now, directive and week 23: Home can be defined by a place, memory or person. Show me a photograph of your 'home'

“Home is a place of refuge, somewhere comfort can be found – the importance of familiar smells, voices and memorable objects to surround ourselves with. Physical movement and separation often define family experiences. As families scatter images of each other and defining moments of our journeys become vital to sustaining relationships and creating a sense of belonging”
