Page through a book of Adine Sagalyn’s Home Portraits and you will experience the essence of both a home and the people who live there. These photographs go to the heart of the home environment, recording details in ways which often surprise the inhabitants themselves. One woman, looking through her own book of Home Portraits, asked: “But where was this taken?” It was a shot of the window right in front of her desk. Adine Sagalyn’s lens reveals the unique character of a room, as of a face, allowing both architectural space and human presence to come intimately alive. She captures the fleeting moment: the shifting fall of light, the gestures which link people in their daily lives. Home Portraits is timeless, luminous trace of a home; a vital record of a time and place, a living memory to be shared from generation to generation.
