About Portrait of Humanity
In 2018, 1854 Media, publisher of British Journal of Photography, together with Magnum Photos created Portrait of Humanity, a timely reminder that we are all united by our shared humanity. Three years ago, we created Portrait of Britain. Envisioned as an exhibition for the people, by the people, Portrait of Britain captured the many faces of modern Britain. Portrait of Humanity is the next evolutionary step. Together, we have shown how our differences unite us on a global scale.
