The “Face Of” Humanity – unveiling our true identity.
There is one photograph that truly answers that question.
Two years ago I created the Face of Humanity. 670 men and women were selected to proportionally represent the demographics of the world population as reported in 2009.
The subsequent merging of these portraits resulted in the composite Face of Humanity.
In 2007, after over twenty years behind the camera, I stopped photography for two years to write a book about my own creative journey as a photographer. Part of that personal journey involved creating the Face of Humanity, a project motivated by the realization that our collective being could be represented photographically.
