Images of the World

In an era when artists are as flooded with media as any other viewers, and perhaps moreso, World Images asks how they sustain their own individualized worldview, how they see the world and reproduce it in photographs uniquely their own. These works originate from the minds, eyes, and cameras of Axel Htte, Boris Mikhailov, Shirana Shahbazi, James Nachtwey and Wolfgang Tillmans among others. They vary not just in their geography, subjects, and themes, but in their essence, in their personality, in their view of the world.
