Exhibition of the winners of the third annual Tokyo International Photography Competition. Eight photographers from around the world were selected by an illustrious jury of photography professionals to be part of this traveling exhibition kicking off in Brooklyn, New York.

What does it mean to be human? For Sartre, it meant freedom and responsibility – the freedom to choose, the responsibility to act and define one’s place in life. Irvin Yalom gave us the four “givens” of existence: meaning, loneliness, freedom, and mortality. The Human Condition is our eternal search for purpose, but also our capacity for good – and evil. It is kinship, honor, our thirst for knowledge, the pursuit of happiness – but just as often it is the harbinger of pain, death, betrayal, war, the deception of ourselves and of others.
