Three portraits from the online publication 500 Portraits

One Me · One Family

A Celebration of Individuality, Difference, and Kinship.

Enjoy a single portrait associated with a short line of text, or take your time and gaze at all five hundred. The complete collection reflects the general balance of gender, age, and human kind across the globe, yet is weighted towards people of colour, indigenous communities, and the poor, all of whom have been historically under-represented.


The text that accompanies each portrait completes each artwork. All 500 artworks along with the indexed text can be read as an epic poem 'Young Before The Dawn', and forms the greater whole: One Me · One Family.
