On view September 14-December 10, 2017

Opening Reception: Thursday, September 14 5:00pm Members Preview and Tour | 6:00pm Public Opening

Photographic Center Northwest (PCNW) presents Notions of Home, an exhibition featuring over 50 photographers from the Northwest and beyondNotions of Home speaks to the complex realities of what home means for each individual, within our city, and in America today. As many in our city face a scarcity of affordable living, and politics affects who can call America “home,” we look to photography to do what it does best: engage, reveal, provoke, and elucidate various viewpoints on this topic.

A portion of the images exhibited September 14-October 12 will be auctioned October 13 at PCNW’s annual benefit, with proceeds supporting PCNW, as well as select other organizations.

Exhibiting Photographers: Corey Arnold, Will Austin, Tim Barney, Zack Bent, Erin Elyse Burns, Elinor Carucci, Adrain Chesser, Neil Chowdury, Annabel Clark, Elliott Erwitt, Joe Freeman, Paulo Gonzales, Cian Hayes, Daniel Hawkins, Thomas Holton, Eirik Johnson, Hiroyo Kaneko, Lisa Kereszi, Natalie Krick, Harini Krishnamurthy, Chris Letcher, Emily Hanako Momohara, Annie Marie Musselman, Canh Nguyen, Anna Ream, Jenny Riffle, Serrah Russell, Ross Sawyers, Rafael Soldi, María Sprowls, Eva Sköld Westerlind, and others.
