In his project for Fujifilm’s Magnum Home, Alex Majoli photographed three places he has called home. “At the end I found myself searching for memories, anchors, reasons of a journey,” he says.

Over the years we live somewhere, our understanding of a home’s timespan is more likely to be cyclical, repetitive and sometimes chaotic. It holds our memories, fears and desires: assembled like furniture and surrounded by mental clutter. Majoli photographs that “home” we are all familiar with, the one that exists in a place and time; that’s subject to the circular rhythms of life and is undefined and endlessly transforming in our imaginations.

Magnum Home is a project that invited sixteen Magnum photographers from far-reaching corners of the world to present work based on their personal reflections of the meaning of the term “home”. As the exhibition opens in MilanAlex Majoli presents a poetic and deeply personal portrait of his explorations of places he has lived, as he continues his search for the final place he will call his home.
