Tales from a Globalizing World. A collective Portfolio
A new World is emerging from the accelerating phenomenon that we call globalization. While the process of globalization connects people and places that are geographically remote, it also fragments local connections. Everyone is affected by globalization, but for many their involvement takes the form of exclusion. To reveal its constructive as well as its destructive power, ten very different and distinguished photographers have been commissioned to produce photo-stories from five different continents.
