Our World Insideout: Photos by Alyssa Miserendino
Photos of abandoned homes either from an eviction, the funds running out during construction, or the owner(s) passing away.
Our World Insideout was born from my young home life that was raw, violent, and steeped in displacement and abandonment. The catalyst of this life-long project started with documenting my own abandoned home in 2004, from the inside. Then in 2009, during the economic crash, I found a relation to the familiar emotion of loss and I started documenting other’s homes. I created the imagery with the hope that this project will incite a visual, global dialog concerning the used and unused resources; thus inspiring change. It touches on the many levels of humanity and one of the most sacred places for us: home.
