Open Call: This is Home

In December 2021, 10 young photographers were featured as part of our exhibition This is Home during CPB Edition 3 Students’ Showcase!

The theme required children to reflect on what ‘home’ means to them, and the way their relationship with home changed during the pandemic.

The project was an attempt at turning our gazes inward, at reflecting on the things that are most essential to us about home — the people we love, the objects we treasure, the places we feel safest in, the neighborhoods we’ve grown up in, the friends and strangers who are special to us, and the archives of photographs our families have built over decades.
