Identity 2023

We invited photographers from around the world to submit their most compelling and thought-provoking works for our exhibition, Identity 2023. This exhibition celebrates the timeless art of portraiture and the profound stories that can be conveyed through the human figure. Our juror selected images which explore the intricate and intimate connections that bind us as human beings. Through the lens of portraiture, this exhibition unveils the unique narratives that are etched onto each individual’s face and body. The human form, whether presented in its unadorned simplicity or adorned with personal symbolism, serves as a canvas for emotions, experiences, and stories that transcend cultural boundaries.
