In 1939 Edward Steichen was given the assignment to curate a show for the Museum of Modern Art, in New York City. He asked 30 photographers including Cartier Bresson, Eugene Smith, and Dorothea Lange, to document the common links of humanity worldwide. Steichen asked the photographers to photograph the commonalities of Birth, Childhood, Love, marriage, and Death. The photographic documentation for this exhibition became the biggest-selling photography book in the history of photography.
This year IPA takes inspiration from the Family of Man, to document parallel circumstances in the world today, which produced those iconic works. IPA will divide this project into similar categories, and we invite you to participate in this exciting and deeply meaningful event, so the generations to come will have access to these images from around the world.
