America at Home Project

A massive photo project is underway this week, cataloging life at home. This project is open to all, collecting images of the diversity of homelife in the US during one week of 2007. A team of editors will choose the best submissions to be included in a book and traveling exhibition."For one entire week, from September 17-23, the America at Home project will enable millions of Americans to capture "the emotions of home." We're looking for the distinctive rituals, ceremonies, traditions, intimate moments and all the myriad ways in which we work, play, learn, conduct our lives and interact with friends, family members (and pets!) as we transform our houses (and apartments, trailers, etc) into our homes. From McMansions to mobile homes, from tree houses to tenement slums, from ranches to old age homes, the public is invited to help document the harmonies and paradoxes of home life across America over a single seven-day period. "

A Snapfish page has been set up to collect the photos, with a deadline of 9/25.
