PMH Press Release
PHOTOGRAPHIC MUSEUM OF HUMANITY presents its new exhibition: IN TRANSIT
August 5th, 2013: Photographic Museum of Humanity announces the release of its new online exhibition “In Transit”, featuring the works of prestigious photographers of the PMH community like Alejandro Cartagena, Michelle Frankfurter, Sibylle Fendt and Alejandro Lipszyc. The exhibition counts with a special introduction by the recognized novelist and journalist Francisco Goldman.
Migrations are a persistent phenomena in the history of mankind. For different reasons, within different contexts and most of the times forced, people have been moving from one region to one another, changing the places where they lived and assimilating new ways of life.
The aim of this exhibition is to go deep into the subject, in different scales: from Latin American people risking their lives in order to fulfill their own "American Dream", to workers moving everyday from the city center to the suburbs. In every circumstance, migrants seem to be in a no man’s land: they are trying to leave behind an old way of living while dreaming with a new one.
“In Transit” is a deep view of this transition between the old world that migrants had to withdraw from and the new one in which they pin their hopes.
