The Annenberg Space for Photography presents No Strangers: Ancient Wisdom in a Modern World -- a group show about the wonder of culture and the plight of indigenous people throughout the world.
The exhibit is guest curated by esteemed anthropologist, author, and photographer Wade Davis. No Strangers explores the ways cultures express a shared humanity and navigate the circle of life. It poses a fundamental question: What does it mean to be human and alive?
