The BJP’s 1854 Portrait of Humanity Prize 2021 tells a vast breadth of stories from around the globe. In this year of unprecedented struggle, the message of hope, courage, reflection and resilience is now more important than ever. 200 shortlisted images will be featured in a book, published by Hoxton Mini Press. The book will be supported by the Portrait of Humanity Global Tour, where 30 winning images and three bodies of work will travel first be shown at PHOTO 2021 (Australia) from 18 February until 7 March as a free outdoor exhibition, before moving on to the Belfast Photo Festival on 3 June, and Indian Photo Festival later in the year. What Photography & Incarceration have in Common with an Empty Vase is the winner of this year’s series category.
