A portion of the On The Edge collection is currently being exhibited at Charlotte Family Housing located at 300 Hawthorne Lane in Charlotte, NC. The schedule of future exhibits will be posted here as it is determined. Check back frequently for updates!
Between strength and instability…between vulnerability and pride are the working poor. One paycheck away from being homeless … again.  Everyday they maintain the balancing act of holding a job and simply holding it together.  Everyday we see them teaching and caring for our children, working in the stores and restaurants we frequent , and providing other vital services to our community; we never know how close to the edge they really are.
Photographer and project creator Susan Sidebottom has captured working families on the uphill climb from homelessness to housing in “On the Edge: Homeless and Working Among Us.”  Come to understand their experience through the power of the image.
