In the world of NFTs, photography offers a unique connection to the many realities of humanity. Through photography, we contemplate powerful images of our past, present and future, witness fantastical displays of creativity, and truly feel beyond ourselves. As life is fleeting, photography testifies to the nature of the camera’s role as an indispensable device for creating lifelong moments in time.
This February, Institut highlights three young photographers whose artistic practice is focused on the diverse discipline of Photography.
