'The home is within each of us and it can be built outside of a conventional environment where we often do not experience, the experience of a home.' - Artist's statement
"This image was submitted without any information, which leaves the narrative entirely to the viewer. Like a book without text, I had to create a story for a visual. Is this an after-dinner game? A family portrait of interlacing hands? Four individuals of different generations, genders and ethnicities are gathered holding hands after a meal. We are reminded, as per the words of Dermot Bolger in The Journey Home, that "home was not the place where you were born but the place you created yourself, where you did not need to explain, where you finally became what you were." - Judge comment - Marion Tandé, the Manager for the Department of Photography at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York.
