Photographers Help Create Atlas of Humanity
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 seeks to include a photographic record of every culture worldwide. The collection currently includes images from more than 400 ethnic groups contributed by more than 100 photographers worldwide.
A dedicated gallery space at The Photography Show 2019 in Birmingham, England from March 16-19 will give attendees a taste of this ambitious project. Each image will be printed on a specially selected archival inkjet media manufactured by Innova Art.
Every photograph in the Atlas of Humanity project focuses 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 individual talents are not the focus of this project, the pool of photographers building this collection is as diverse as the collection itself. Contributing photographers include award-winning photojournalists, professional photographers, and talented amateurs. Anyone and everyone who uses a camera is invited to contribute to the Atlas of Humanity.

The next Atlas of Humanity exhibition will be presented at the The International Photo Exhibition in Paris, November 8-10, 2019.

The deadline for submitting images for consideration in the November show is May 31, 2019.
