Above the slick vinyl booths and vintage arcade games at Pete’s Diner now hang works of art by many lesser-known artists of the area—current and former homeless men and women of Greater Lafayette.

This past year, individuals familiar with homelessness documented their daily lives by snapping pictures with disposable cameras that were provided to them by a Purdue multimedia writing class.

Students wrote a variety of prompts to generate inspiration and met with the artists regularly to discuss the stories behind the photos.
