As photographers we are always looking and seeing things differently. Whether it’s people that we see the beauty in (and they don’t see it themselves) or it’s something we see that reminds us of someone – it could be a place, a flower, a cup left on a table – a memory or sense of place and being. A photograph can be a memorial or tribute to someone lost, or a sign of appreciation for someone who is alive and loved.

Shutter Hub teamed up with US-based Float Photo Magazine to produce this online exhibition which will run from 02 August 2021, open to photographers worldwide, and curated by Creative Director Karen Harvey, who has selected 23 photographers for this show.

HOW I SEE YOU brings together touching and beautiful representations of people through objects, spaces and abstraction, sometimes joyful, sometimes sad, and everything in between.
