'Portrait Of Humanity' Photo Exhibition @ Capa Centre
Works by the winners of the Portrait of Humanity 2020 photography competition, 30 images in all, will be shown at the Capa Centre in Budapest from 4 September until 11 October.

The show features Eric Demers’s Portrait of activist Greta Thunberg speaking before the largest gathering in Canadian history, as well as Marie Hald’s images celebrating self-acceptance, capturing Norwegian positive body image activist Marte.

Mirja Maria Thiel’s photograph captures an intimate moment between a couple married for sixty years, while Snezhana von Büdingen’s series features Sofie, a nineteen-year-old girl with Down syndrome.

1854 Media, the publisher of the British Journal of Photography, announced the 2020 Portrait of Humanity competition with a view to providing photographers the opportunity to show “what it means to be human in this troubled age”.

A jury of leading photo editors, curators and festival organisers selected the images from thousands of entries.
