Identities Now will be a book comprised of select images submitted by photographers around the globe. The mission is to explore the current state of the photographic portrait through gathering the best work from a diverse cross-section of artists. Every photograph will be reviewed by the selection committee, which is comprised of top professionals in photography and the arts. Portraits will be chosen based solely on photographic merit in the eyes of this group.
Once published, the book will be available online and in bookstores. It will be a dynamic snapshot of what is happening in contemporary portrait photography, and will serve to promote and celebrate the photographers whose work is chosen.
