Human beings are capable of amazing things. So far we’ve adapted to everything the world has thrown at us and have survived and even thrived. There’s hardly a corner of the planet that we haven’t colonised and called home. We’ve created marvels of engineering and technology. We’ve climbed the highest mountains and dived the deepest seas. We cured disease and pestilence with scientific advances at a staggering rate. Mankind has the capacity to shape our world for the benefit of all. Yet within our nature there also lurks a darker side – the ability to wage wars and inflict suffering on others.
Yet even amid the horrors of war and disaster the Mankind’s inert spirit is impossible to crush.
This breathtaking collection of photographs illustrate the sheer diversity of human life. Some are tragic; some are inspiring; some are simply awe-inspiring – yet the one thing they have in common is they feature ordinary people in extraordinary situations.
