This exhibition  brings together the works by  two renowned photographers, Alfred Duggan-Cronin and Edward S. Curtis, who were respectively photographing in southern Africa and northern America during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

The title of this exhibition speaks to larger questions of looking, of limitations of temporality and definitions of being human.
