In partnership with 1854—publishers of the British Journal of Photography—Portrait of Humanity is showing exclusively in Australia at PHOTO 2022 as the first stage of a world tour.

Celebrating both individuality and unity, Portrait of Humanity invites photographers of all levels of experience to show how people can use photography to overcome our differences and unite as a global community. For this edition, Portrait of Humanity has asked entrants to shine a light on the spirit, strength and togetherness that has sustained our species through this dark time in history.

PHOTO 2022’s presentation of the thirty winning images and three winning bodies of work will be displayed as an outdoor exhibition throughout Fitzroy and Collingwood.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
