The Photographic Museum of Humanity was set up in 2012 as a way to create the first online Photographic Museum welcome to all photographers and visitors, a way for people to learn more about the language of photography.

‘Our Photographic Museum will be the first Museum actually accessible to everyone from every corner of the world, at any time and always free. A museum filled with the best photos shared within an artistic community where everyone will be free to display their talents.
This museum will allow us to get closer to the photographic arts. And by means of those thousands of photos shot by photographers of different nationalities and backgrounds around the world, we will be able to see what contemporary society is about.’
