Purpose and Activities

The foundation is dedicated to collecting and promoting contemporary photographic art across recent historical periods and diverse geographic regions. Its mission is to present to the public, through in-depth annual exhibitions and a program of publishing, works of historical and contemporary significance from artists working in Africa, Asia, and other parts of the world whose enduring contributions to photography significantly expand the understanding, conception, and history of the medium. The foundation is expected to collect and exhibit a segment of modern and contemporary European and American photography, uniting the various focuses of the collection in lively, rigorous curatorial dialogue through thematic and conceptual relationships.
