Portrait of Humanity
We are proud to announce that Hanna Maule-ffinch’s beautiful portrait of Pastor Seburikoko Alberta, which she met and photographed whilst in Uganda on a commission for Save the Children, has been shortlisted for the Portrait of Humanity 2020 awards, and will be published in the Portrait of Humanity Book, Vol.2, AND transmitted through the universe in binary code – with the potential to be picked up and decoded by another civilisation!
Portrait of Humanity is a global initiative by 1854 Media, publisher of British Journal of Photography
First launched in 2018 in collaboration with Magnum Photos, Portrait of Humanity serves as a timely reminder, that despite our many differences, we are able to unite as a global community through the power of photography, to create one of the greatest collaborative photography exhibitions in history.
At its core, Portrait of Humanity is a celebration of Individuality, Community, and Unity.
As part of Portrait of Humanity 2020, the shortlisted photographs will be published in the Portrait of Humanity Book, Vol.2, and will be exhibited in Space by Sent Into Space and transmitted through the universe in binary code — with the potential to be picked up and decoded by another civilisation! 30 winning images and three winning bodies of work will be exhibited at various locations across the world. Up to 100 commended images will also be exhibited digitally on Clear Channel screens internationally to be seen by millions.→ Hannah Maule-ffinch
