These are portraits of tenants and staff of HousingPlus, a non-profit housing and support program for formerly homeless and/or incarcerated women, taken during special events, such as company annual BBQ, Christmas celebration, or a Vision Board afternoon to realize goals. These events are a part of a developing photography and art program I’ve helped run as a professional photographer and experienced teacher. In this program, the women, and in some cases their teenage daughters learn to photograph their neighborhood and families, document events and create exhibitions.
