LIENA VAYZMAN
"Shelter" series
Liena Vayzman's series "Shelter" is a socially-engaged art project based on photographic portraits of individuals the artist met at a day shelter for people experiencing homelessness in Chicago.

"Shelter" includes color portraits and short interviews with individuals, touching on the intersections between health care access, poverty, homelessness, the criminal justice system, as well as photographs of the shelter’s spaces, food service, and human interactions.

The project reflects the artist's interest in images of exile, transition, and constructions of "home".
