Museum exhibition: Humans at sea

2022-10-07 - 2023-05-28

This autumn, the National Maritime Museum and Dutch National Portrait Gallery present Humans at Sea, a photography exhibition about the broad, divergent maritime world in which amazing, stimulating and moving portraits and stories show how a life at sea can change people.

The exhibition Humans at Sea portrays how people adopt specific roles at sea, and how the sea changes our sense of identity: on board of a ship, we find social structures and hierarchies, but also freedom and transition. Seafaring people are always on the move, travelling from A to B – not always by choice -, navigating between worlds, and sailing into the unknown.
