Home is Where the Heart Is

A Photography Project by Nicky Soulier

A "project" by definition is "planned set of interrelated tasks to be executed over a fixed period and within certain cost and other limitations." Or "an individual or collaborative enterprise that is carefully planned and designed to achieve a particular aim."

It's a self-selected subject or theme-based project that the photographer selects to express their own thoughts & convictions.

Basic Idea:

Take pictures of families in front of and inside their homes.

Purpose: Promote family, home, and printed photographs.

I want my work as a photographer to mean something and to serve a purpose for society. I want to be a photographic historian for families of my day and geographic region. I believe families to be crucial to the success of society as a whole and happiness as an individual. I believe most of the magic happens within the walls of our homes. I think it's important that every family have a printed picture of themselves in front of their homes. It will serve as a reminder that their family is the most important thing in their lives. I want families to have something tangible to pass on to posterity. And I also want people in this digital age to remember the value of printed pictures. 

Come and be a part of this project and you will not only be showing support for the family but you will get a picture of your family in front of your home as well as a treasure to pass on to posterity.

What better place to have as a background for your family pictures than the place where you spend the most time making memories?
