Exhibition Review

Exhibition Review

This year for Women’s History Month, Fotografiska New York partnered with Leica to highlight three female photographers. The exhibition's title is The Bind of Humanity, and the show features the recipients of the Leica Women Foto Project Award.
The exhibition examines the concept of how a narrative has the power to determine the actions of not only the individual but the broader community.
In addition, the show will illuminate underrepresented voices through the visual narrative from the female perspective.
The Bind of Humanity reveals the LWFP 2022 Awardees in a group exhibition alongside the works of Leica Oskar Barnack Winner, Ana María Arévalo Gosen.
If you find yourself in New York City, the exhibition runs through April 10, 2022. Check out information about the show online here.
