What is The World Today 10K+ Collection?

138 world-class, established and emerging photographers from all 5 continents, including various Magnum photographers, brought together by Obscura DAO 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.

The World Today 10K+ is a founding a new paradigm in the photography medium, expanding the frontier of possibilities for photography in the web3 era, and is responsible for onboarding dozens of world-class photographers to NFTs.

How it Works

138 photographers from around the world were asked to photograph all aspects of life through their personal vision, resulting in a curated collection of 13,800 NFT native 1/1 photographs offered through a blind mint at the price of 0.08 ETH each. Mint button above!
