Randy Bacon: The Road I Call Home
Randy Bacon is a contemporary American photographer based in Springfield,
Missouri. He has an extensive history in portrait and documentary photography,
as well as, humanitarian work. At the core of his work is the ability to present
emotive, authentic visual stories of the people he photographs.
This exhibit presents portraits from the ongoing series The Road I Call Home
featuring simple, direct, casual studio portraits of homeless individuals.
These portraits emphasize the beauty, identity, and integrity of each person
and is accompanied by a narrative, as told by the subject, sharing their
personal story of homelessness. The goal of this project is to bring awareness
to our homeless communities and convey a simple message according to the
Artist – “That we’re all one-of-a-kind special people and every single one of us matters.”
