“None of us are home until all of us are home.” — Project HOME
Over the past decade and a half, we’ve had to opportunity to photograph dozens, if not hundreds, of homes. From Manhattan to Miami to Monteray, most of the houses we’ve been hired to shoot fall into the “high-end luxury” category.
It was especially gratifying, then, to do a shoot showcasing homes for those less fortunate. Project HOME has been helping people break the cycle of homelessness and poverty in Philadelphia since 1989.
Instead of shelters for the 6,000-12,000 homeless in the city, Project HOME provides a variety of housing options, from entry level “havens” to permanent abodes, all with support services aimed at getting people back on their feet.
Some of these buildings are right in the middle of Center City, some are in less robust areas, but all are well-maintained and welcoming. Mark used his signature photo stitching and pole techniques to capture vantages that best showed off each location.
Project HOME is currently adding to/revamping its website, which is where these images will end up. It was a pleasure to provide photography for an organization with such a good cause at the heart of its mission.
