The World We Live In: Through the Lens of Contemporary Photography
February 17 to March 27, 2016 (Tuesday to Sunday, 9 am to 6 pm)

Sundaram Tagore Gallery and Collective 88, in partnership with Ayala Museum, present The World We Live In: Through the Lens of Contemporary Photography, a specially curated exhibition that portrays how contemporary photographers document and interpret the world around us, creating images that are both aesthetically thrilling and deeply thought-provoking.

This exhibition has been organized in conjunction with Art Fair Philippines, Feb. 18-21.

The exhibition includes five iconic photographers represented by Sundaram Tagore Gallery in Asia: Sebastião Salgado, Steve McCurry, Robert Polidori, Edward Burtynsky and Annie Leibovitz. These highly acclaimed individuals share a truly global perspective in their artistic endeavors, while individually crafting unique and often breathtaking visual narratives of key issues of contemporary culture.

The exhibition is a continuation of Sundaram Tagore Gallery’s mission to promote cross-cultural dialogue and globalism in contemporary art. We have organized the show in partnership with Collective 88 and with the help of these generous sponsors: BDO World Elite Mastercard, Discovery Primea, Philippine Tatler, Rogue and L’Officiel.
