About Obscura “The World Today” 10K NFT Photo Collection

Each photographer was given one month, from March–April 2022, to capture a microcosm of life. Their work offers a unique glimpse of our connections in the 21st Century. This project is an ode to the 1955 exhibition “The Family of Man” by Edward Steichen for the MoMA.

Portions of this captivating visual ledger of 13,800 tokens on the blockchain is on view at MAD Arts in an exhibit of interchangeable spaces, creating an infinite combination of images constantly changing, where no moment is ever the same. Visitors can scan the QR code of any image, visit the NFT auction of that artist’s work, and become crypto art collectors, supporting TWT projects and artists in their Web3 journey.

The ‘Talking Space’ gallery, a unique feature of the exhibit, showcases Q&A interviews with 26 of the participating artists from 15 different countries, giving access to their photographic practice and process.
