The result of collaboration between CRASSH and the United Photo Industries (New York), Human Flows is a juried-competition based photographic exhibition held at the Alison Richard Building from February 7 to April 1 2013.

Flows are an integral property of the human experience. They influence our actions as individuals and as a society. From Dance to Migration, from Energy to Pilgrimage, flows can take many forms. Flows may be voluntary or forced, invited or constrained. Human Flows is a photography competition and exhibition that explores such flows in all their manifestations. Image categories include: Dance, Body, Energy, Migration, Pilgrimage, and Protest.

The exhibition opening will take place on Thursday, February 7th 2013, with a symposium and wine reception in the atrium.

Speakers at the opening event:

  • Professor Caroline Humphrey (Professor of Social Anthropology, Cambridge)
  • Professor David Napier (Professor of Social Anthropology, UCL)
  • Mr Igor Gulin (Literary critic for 'Kommersant-Weekend' magazine)
  • Dr Christos Lynteris (CRASSH).

Free and open to all, no registration required.
