PMH Press Release
January 6th, 2014 - Photographic Museum of Humanity is glad to present its latest curated exhibition A Year of Museum. In January 2013, just a year ago, we inaugurated our Museum, the first in Internet dedicated to contemporary photography, where an international public could access curated contents for free Since then we presented more than 50 galleries and more than 100 recognised photographers exhibited their works.
Now that a year has passed and around 300,000 people have visited our exhibitions, we think it is a good occasion to look back and to put together again the works that have been appreciated the most by our public.
In the course of this month you will be able to see again 10 photographers and their projects, 5 in the upcoming two weeks and 5 in the last two weeks of the month.
Then, in February we will inaugurate a new cycle of exhibitions based on a new editorial concept.
