Watch The First Photography Exhibition In Space

Launching off the back of the British Journal of Photography and Magnum PhotosPortrait of Humanity award, the two photography juggernauts came together to launch the first exhibition in space.

400 shortlisted photographs including the winners of the award were sent into space courtesy of ‘Sent Into Space‘. The British Journal of Photography said: “1854 Media revealed a new film, available to view below, capturing an exhibition of 400 photographs ascending 130,000 feet into the stratosphere. Drawn from Portrait of Humanity, a movement seeking to prove there is more that unites us than sets us apart, the exhibited images showcase the many faces of communities across the world.”

A spread from Vol.2 of Portrait of Humanity available for purchase through Hoxton Mini Press.

1854 Media partnered with Sent Into Space to broadcast a message of peace and unity from humankind to space — and possibly even our extra-terrestrial counterparts. The exhibited images also translate into binary code and are beamed through the universe at the speed of light.”

Using a 360 VR camera, the collaboration launched the photographs into space using our planet as the most poignant of backdrops to reveal photographs that detail every crevice and a story of our Earth.

Both Vol.1 & Vol.2 featuring all 400 photographs are available to buy from Hoxton Mini Press.
