As part of this year’s Athens Photo Festival, we are presenting a partial display of the group exhibition titled: “1%: Privilege in a Time of Global Inequality”. This project is a response to the exploding gap between poverty and wealth in the world. The growing inequality between contradictory life conditions is visualized in contemporary documentary shots by famous photographers. The images, reminiscent of the private collections of great art patrons, allow a variety of approaches to the subject, while they stimulate a debate on this phenomenon: The richest one percent of the world’s population owns almost half of total assets.
