Monument of Mankind is an autonomous and independent art project of the artists Henk Wijnen en Wim van Sijl.

Since 2011 they produce under the name wijnen.vansijl a gallery of group portraits, which together constitute the monument.

In the group portraits they search for the group identity and the specific cooperation bonds.

The aim is to bring connection between individuals in the picture.

“Collaboration forms the ground for mankind”.

The group portraits (photo images) are constructed according to a composition sketch and developed further via several shots of the individuals.
