The Bahamian Project In 46 Seconds
The Bahamian Project is a not-for-profit initiative in collaboration with Popopstudios and The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas.
The project aims to create a permanent collection of large, high quality, fine art portrait photographs that document the character and preserve the legacy of the individuals who make The Bahamas so unique.
The Bahamian Project will feature portraits of Bahamian people of all ages, all walks of life and from around the islands of The Bahamas, who represent the good in our Bahamian society – from prominent societal icons to the man-on-the-street.
Community-oriented initiatives have also been planned – particularly geared toward Bahamian youth. Community activities that will help create an awareness of the people who have been photographed, to educate the young on where we have come from and help create positive role models.
There will be approximately 60 portraits taken in the first year of the ongoing project. The NAGB will host an exhibition of the photographs in July as part of their programming for the 40th Anniversary of The Bahamas’ Independence.
