Innova Art are pleased to be working in association with Atlas of Humanity to show a selection of prints from the project at The Photography Show 2019, March 16-19, Birmingham NEC.
Inspired by the UNESCO universal declaration: “to help preserve and promote cultural diversity”, Atlas of Humanity is a collection of photographs conceived and curated by Martin Vegas. Started in 2015, the project has grown organically over time. Collated from contributions by more than 100 photographers worldwide, with an ever growing collection of images, currently showing more than 400 ethnic groups. Atlas of Humanity has one aim: to celebrate diversity through a photographic record of every culture worldwide.
For the first time in the UK, visitors to The Photography Show 2019 will be able to get a taste of this ambitious project in print within a dedicated gallery space. Each image will be printed on a specially selected archival inkjet media manufactured by Innova Art. Prior to Photokina 2018, where the first printed exhibition took place, the only way that the Atlas of Humanity collection could be seen was online.
Through the selection of images on display, visitors to The Photography Show 2019 will see that every photograph in the Atlas of Humanity project focusses on the diversity of the subject matter. The creative styles and approaches of each individual photographer are secondary to the subject of the image.
Although their individual talents are not the focus of this project, the pool of photographers building this collection is as diverse as the collection itself. Ranging from professionals and photo journalists with multiple awards, through to talented amateurs and friends of photographers already involved. Anyone and everyone who uses a camera is invited to contribute to the Atlas of Humanity.
So, not only can visitors to The Photography Show 2019 see the world at Birmingham NEC, they may just be inspired by it as well.
Atlas of Humanity in association with Innova Art will be at The Photography Show, Birmingham NEC, March 16-19. A ticket will be required to view the exhibition, click here to register for The Photography Show 2019.
