Portrait of Humanity
November 22, 2019 – February 1, 2020
Opening & PhotoNOLA Welcome Party: Wednesday, Dec 11, 5-7pm
Portrait of Humanity is an international initiative by 1854 Media, publisher of British Journal of Photography, which serves as a timely reminder that despite our many differences, we are able to unite as a global community through the power of photography.
In its inaugural year, photographers of all levels were invited to show the world through their eyes, to capture the many faces of humanity, and to document the universal expressions of life; laughter, courage, moments of reflection, journeys to work, first hellos, last goodbyes, and everything in between. At its core, Portrait of Humanity is a celebration of our shared values: Individuality, Community, and Unity.
50 images will be exhibited at the Arsenal, part of a traveling exhibition visiting various locations across the world. A video of the 200 shortlisted photographs, which were published in the Portrait of Humanity Book, will also be on view.
