Welcome to Through Our Eyes, Street Sense Media (SSM)’s first photography publication and exhibit featuring images created by ten SSM artist/vendors in 2022–2023. For seven months, participating artist/vendors, Alexandra Silverthorne (artist-in-residence) and, and Maria Lares (manager of artistic workshops) gathered to take photographs, look at images, and talk about photography and art. All artist/vendors are individuals with lived experience of homelessness. Now you may see this city of ours through our eyes.

At Street Sense Media we are a community on a mission to end homelessness in the Washington, DC area by empowering people in need with the skills, tools, and confidence to succeed. Together we use a range of media platforms to raise awareness, amplify the voices of people with lived experiences of homelessness, and spotlight solutions to homelessness in our community.
