Face of Our Time presents four artists who use photography to capture a world in crisis. Yto Barrada looks at the impact of tourism in Northern Morocco, while Guy Tillim examines politics and community across Africa. Judith Joy Ross makes quiet but powerful portraits of Iraq War protesters in rural Pennsylvania, and Leo Rubinfien photographs cities that have recently experienced terrorist attacks. Sutcliffe discusses these artists and how they present contemporary life.
