What does it mean to be human? This is the overarching question in the most recent instalment of New Photography, a biannual group show hosted by MoMA in New York. Being: New Photography 2018 presents a group of 17 photographers from around the world at various stages in their careers, representing a variety of techniques, styles and traditions. By challenging the conventions of photographic portraiture in particular and the medium in general, the work on show explores questions surrounding representation, identity and privacy in the 21st century, and the role of images in the formation of communities and personhood.
Being: New Photography 2018 is on show until August 19, 2018 at The Museum of Modern Art, 11 West 53 Street, New York, NY USA
