Portrait of Humanity Winners & Shortlist Vol.4

1854 Media and British Journal of Photography are thrilled to reveal the winners and shortlist of Portrait of Humanity Volume 4.

Portrait of Humanity recognises remarkable portraits that capture the moments that make us who we are. This year’s winning images serve as a powerful prism through which to understand a myriad of stories from around the globe: there are displays of joy, stoicism, hope and bravery – poignant reminders that 2021 proved there is light at the end of the coronavirus pandemic-induced tunnel.

The 30 winning images and three bodies of work will first be shown at PHOTO 2022 in Melbourne between April 29 – May 22 and at Indian Photo Festival Nov 18 -Dec 19.

The 200 shortlisted images are featured in the Portrait of Humanity Vol.4 book, published by Hoxton Mini Press and available for pre-order now.
