Homecoming, the first exhibition of The Anonymous Project in the United States, transforms the FIAF building into a space of collective memory through whimsical, vintage photographs collected by artist and filmmaker Lee Shulman from around the country over the last seven years.
Taking over each floor of FIAF, this unique photography installation features the largest collection of one-of-a-kind photographs by everyday people ever exhibited in the U.S. From Gallery to Skyroom, from floor to ceiling, Homecoming illustrates intimate moments of family life and familial celebration, such as birthdays, weddings, and holidays. A labyrinth installation in the FIAF Gallery is made up of photo negatives combined to create a stained-glass window effect, immersing visitors in a kaleidoscope of captured memories from the last 70 years.
Started by Shulman in 2017, The Anonymous Project aims to collect, preserve, and exhibit unique Kodachrome slides and vintage photographs taken by regular people. Each installment of the project focuses on a specific theme, highlighting moments from everyday life and festive occasions.
