“In culture, we seek truth and understanding. In culture, we build bridges, not walls.” – Yo-Yo Ma

Cellist Yo-Yo Ma and photographer Austin Mann explore the role culture can play in helping us to imagine and build a stronger, more resilient society. This special collaboration continues the experiment that Mr. Ma began with the Bach Project, in which performances of Bach’s suites for solo cello on six continents were paired with “Days of Action” to ask how culture seeks truth, builds trust and encourages us all to work in service of one another. As Mann documented Mr. Ma’s journey, the two developed a friendship rooted in their shared belief that culture can connect us in our pursuit of a better future.
