I found it incredibly moving watching this exhibition. At a time when visiting galleries has been difficult or impossible, the clever people at the British Journal of Photography have created something quite magical.

400 photographs [from the 2019 and 2020 Portrait of Humanity award] ascending 130,000 feet into the stratosphere, broadcasting a message of peace and unity from humankind to space – and possibly even our extra-terrestrial counterparts.”

There is more that unites us than sets us apart

From take-off to landing, enjoy the whole exhibition here.

As always, my thanks to Emma Slade, Madeleine Smith, Julie Read, Betty Brigstock-Williams and the Parker family. Thanks also to the teams at Portrait of Humanity and British Journal of Photography.

      Ha! Thanks Gerry x If you get time to watch the film is really relaxing – “…sitting in a tin can, far above the world, planet earth is blue…”
