no strangers explores the ways cultures express a shared humanity and navigate the circle of life. It poses a fundamental question: What does it mean to be human and alive? When the people of the world answer this question, they do so in 7,000 unique voices. Tragically, half of these may be silenced within a generation or two. At risk is our human legacy, a vast archive of knowledge and expertise. The exhibit is curated by esteemed anthropologist and photographer Wade Davis.
“We feel privileged to photograph these cultures that posses a wealth of knowledge that should be celebrated, share, and honored. It is our life passion to document and create a powerful visual record of these vanishing ways of life for future generations” – Carol Beckwith & Angela Fisher
