Monument of Mankind is a collaboration between the artists Henk Wijnen en Wim van Sijl.

Since 2011 they build under the name wijnen.vansijl a serie 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 the collaboration / 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.
