The theme for FUJIFILM Photo Collection II is Capturing the Human Experience. Portraiture is considered the starting point for photography and the strongest motivation at the dawn of photography. While many new techniques have evolved during the history of photography, portraiture has always been and still is the focal point for peopleʼs interest. Capturing the Human Experience is a universal theme in photography, a theme that is both the most familiar and the most special in the history of photography.

FUJIFILM Photo Collection II comprises 53 masterpieces that capture the human experience taken by prominent international photographers who are among the giants of world photography in the 20th century.
