A few months ago I had the opportunity to do some volunteer photography for the local Minneapolis chapter of Architecture for Humanity. One of their recent projects was building lockers for The Family Place, a day center for homeless families. Compared to some of the homes I photograph, the lockers where these families keep all their belongings are very small and humble. Everyone who thinks they have it rough should take a moment to think about what it would be like to live without a home.
Maureen Colburn of LHB, Inc., an architecture firm located here in Minneapolis and Duluth, guided me to this project as being something Architecture for Humanity wanted to get documented. Check out Architecture for Humanity at their website – http://architectureforhumanity.org/
Also, The Family Place – http://famplace.org/
Everyone I encountered here was very accommodating in allowing me to photograph them and I really appreciate it!
These lockers are truly a different kind of home than most of us know.
