Grindr and Matt Lambert teamed up to create photo book called Home.

The Berlin-based photographer traveled to Toronto, Paris, London, Prague, New York, Los Angeles, and Berlin, and photographed the models he met through the dating app as well as on Facebook and Twitter.

On their site, Grindr says they ‘commissioned the book to help us all answer the question of where we find ourselves again’.

Home is an exploration of ‘safe spaces’ in a physical and virtual world.

Lambert said: ‘It’s an empowering feeling when you realise home is in your head, heart and relationships. Home is the people around you and home is a feeling’

Grindr Creative Director Landis Smithers told Dazed the idea was also inspired by the Orlando tragedy and our need to find comfort and safety in each other and the world and places around us after ‘we all had that something that had been taken away from us’.

The 102-page NSFW book will be released on 3 January 2017 and contains 48 images of around 20 people.

Below are some of the images Lambert shared on his Instagram account as well as on Dazed.

HOME showcases the work of Berlin-based photographer and filmmaker #MattLambert ( @dielamb ) Traveling through gay communities around the globe, he cast locals in New York, L.A., Paris, London, Toronto and Berlin over a span of six months. “Safe Spaces” are a cornerstone of our community and as Bruce Laruce reflects upon “how it used to be” in his foreword, Matt Lambert beautifully shows us “how it is now”. In each place, he used digital platforms and social media channels to cast for the “Home” project. Interestingly, many of his subjects came from small towns; their stories, in particular, touch upon the importance of digital culture in building a gay community, when there was no one else “like them” around. Lambert’s portraits of and conversations with of young gay men—captured during moments of uninhibited expression and casual intimacy—are a testament to what “safe spaces” mean to our youth: the freedom to define and refine their identities and sexual desires.
