The Human Snapshot




The Human Snapshot is the outcome of an international conference in Arles, France, exploring humanism and universalism in contemporary art and organised by the LUMA Foundation and CCS Bard. We were commissioned to design the volume, which features essays that draw upon the 1955 exhibition The Family of Man at MoMA, to reflect universalist themes from a contemporary perspective. We deployed both unconventional visual strategies and classical typesetting to produce an object that expands the subjective image-driven critiques, while maintaining the tradition of an unassuming, clothbound library book.
