A photographic portrait of humanity in Clervaux. Since 1994, „The Family of Man”, often described as the biggest and most ambitious photographic project, is permanently located in the castle in Clervaux.

Made up of 503 photographs by 273 artists from 68 countries, the exhibition is a portrait of human existence. In 1955, the exhibition was brought together by Luxembourgish painter and photographer Edward Steichen for the New York Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). Having toured the globe, the final integral version of the exhibition was permanently installed in Clervaux Castle in 1994. It was a gift from the US to the Grand Duchy. Since 2003, the photo collection is part of UNESCO World Heritage.
