Sans Houses // Nashville's Homeless Community Captured through Photography, Sound and Relationship

This blog "utilizes photography, sound, and relationship to attempt to capture a piece of those in and around the homeless community in Nashville." The most recent posts show the effect of the flooding on residents of Tent City and other homeless communities in the area. The photos are incredible and put a human face with Nashville's homelessness problem.

Many of the men and women pictured are writers and vendors for The Contributor, Nashville's street newspaper: "We
strive to print a monthly paper that provides both a diversity of perspectives on homelessness and a source of income for homeless and formerly homeless individuals while creating community between vendors and customers."
