In January 2011 Paul Crane discovered a tent city in downtown St. Louis, along the Mississippi River. He began to think that this place and the people living there could make a great story and he asked them if he could shoot some video, and they said “okay”. He initially thought he would simply go down during the day and capture footage when possible, but he quickly realized that if he wanted to truly capture how these people lived and the full reality of their collective and individual existence, he would have to be there full time and become a part of the place, so he moved in with them. Some of the residents had jobs, had cars, were in relationships, and this was their home. It was just a different type of home.
