The World Today (TWT)

Project website:

138 world-class, established and emerging photographers from 5 continents brought together by Obscura to take the 1st global visual timestamp of the 21st century. 13,800 native 1/1 NFT photographs of cities, landscapes, communities, people, events and conceptual images that will tell our story for centuries to come, taken Mar-Apr 2022.

An ode to the 1955 exhibition “The Family of Man” by legendary curator Edward Steichen for the MoMA, The World Today uses the blockchain to create a permanent record of our world, rich in metadata connections that further develop and cross-reference the stories within, resulting in a complex net of properties and rarities including 138 curated grails, 1 from each artist.

TWT expanded the frontier of possibilities for photography in the web3 era, and is responsible for onboarding dozens world-class photographers to NFTs.
