Bahamian Project Photographers

Over the past five years, the Bahamian Project has captured the character and preserved the legacy of Bahamians whose contributions to The Bahamas have helped shape the heart and soul of our nation.

Since the first year, over 20 additional Bahamas Photographers have volunteered their time and are contributing portrait images, bringing the total number of people that have been photographed to over 120.

In 2013, after the first year of the Bahamian Project, we held a major exhibition at the National Art Gallery of The Bahamas, featuring the Bahamian CollectionPhotographs by Duke Wells, the Bahamian Project’s Creator and Co-Founder.

In July, 2017, we are holding another major exhibition at the Central Bank Gallery in Nassau to showcase new images that have been added to the collection. Our goal is to create the foundation of a Bahamas National Portrait Gallery.
