Time Lightbox features Dana Lixenberg‘s ongoing series “Homeless in Suburbia: Portraits From Jeffersonville, Indiana.” 

In 1997, Dana Lixenberg accepted a magazine commission that would evolve into one of the great personal projects of her career: an ongoing portrait series of the tenants at Haven House, a homeless shelter in Jeffersonville, Ind.

The New York City-based photographer originally traveled to the Hoosier State to document the shelter’s young homeless women for the now-defunct Jane magazine. But she was struck by the variety of people she met and how much they defied the stereotypical image of homelessness.
