“Home is one of the most treasured and most elusive of ideas. It can appear substantial and secure yet quickly vanishes under duress—succumbing to calamity, war or sweeping impoverishment. The photographers in this exhibition bring each of their own distinct perspectives and creative vision to recording this process of disruption, scattering and recovery.” - Howard Chua-Eoan on Invisible Migrations

The museum invites you to share your own immigration stories and photographs that we will post on the Alice Austen House Museum facebook page

This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.

Curated by Paul Moakley and Myles Little of TIME.
