“I want a home”

“I want a home” from Jonathan Michels on Vimeo.

I first met Lynn Corcoran near a demolished house in Albemarle, NC.

All that remained of the house was the foundation and the back door.

I was on my way to the local homeless shelter to work on my entry in the Carolina Photojournalism Workshop. I stopped to take a closer look and my curiosity intensified when I saw clothes and a blanket lying near the door.

Corcoran soon appeared with her dog, Precious, and a surprising friendship began. Within minutes, I decided to shape my film around Corcoran and her unique way of life.

Corcoran is homeless.
