It’s always great to to see my work in print and in this context I’m exceedingly humbled and proud to have achieved this. There were over twenty thousand entries from countries worldwide with only 200 being selected for the book or 1% to put that in context! The standard of photography is superb and was curated by 1854 Media who own one of the oldest and most distinguished photographic magazines, The British Journal of Photography. The curating was undertaken in collaboration with he worlds most renowned Documentary Photographic Agency, MAGNUM Photos.
‘Portrait of Humanity celebrates global citizenship, at a time of great instability.’ Fiona Rogers, Chief Operating Officer, Magnum Photos.
‘We wanted to utilise the undeniable power photography has in the connected world we live in, to paint a portrait of humanity - photographing the people of planet Earth and celebrating every race, religion, sex, gender, age and culture that makes up the intricate tapestry of humanity. We wanted to show the diversity of individuals, accepting that we are all uniquely different, yet the same.’ Marc Hartog, Founder and CEO 1854 Media.
