In the tradition of concerned photography pioneered by Jacob Riis, Lewis Hine and W. Eugene Smith, 13 American photographers set out to document the plight of the nation's homeless. Their work is the subject of "The Way Home: Ending Homelessness in America," an exhibition of 150 photographs at the Corcoran Gallery of Art that opens Saturday.
Photographers who contributed to the show include Annie Leibovitz, Mary Ellen Mark and Tipper Gore, wife of Vice President Albert Gore. The show was organized in cooperation with the National Alliance to End Homelessness and is intended not only to illustrate the personal predicament of homeless individuals but also to suggest national solutions. "The Way Home" runs through Jan. 31.
