Some families close the gaps of geographic distance, transcend blood lines, and provide support and comfort. Others represent struggle, difficulty, and challenge. Some individuals believe they are born into a family; others feel they are constantly searching for one. This is the family dynamic, at once unifying and distinguishing each of us.
With 34 participating programs around the world, and employing disciplines including fine art, photojournalism, documentary film, and animation, Family. Life. explores the feelings, relationships, obstacles, and identities of families across the globe.
Family. Life. is sponsored by Photoshelter, PDN, PhotoWings and ASMP. The Alexia Foundation and Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications are initiating the project.
The Family. Life. project includes 16 countries, 32 schools, 143 projects, 2091 photos, and 44 Videos.
