Description

Hailed as the most successful and inspiring exhibition of photography ever assembled, the Family of Man opened at The Museum of Modern Art in January 1955. This book, the permanent embodiment of Steichen's monumental exhibition, reproduces all of the 503 images that Steichen described as "a mirror of the essential oneness of mankind throughout the world...Photographs, made in all parts of the world, of the gamut of life from birth to death...Photographs of lovers and marriage and child-bearing...Photographs concerned with man's dreams and aspirations and photographs of the flaming creative forces of love and truth and the corrosive evil inherent in the lie." This is a classic and inspiring work, in print for more than forty years.show more
