Description

This stunning collection of photography, by renowned photographer and author of Built by Hand, Yoshio Komatsu, documents our undeniable human connectedness-- as we pass each day alone, with family, with friends, or engaged in the simple journey of life. Around the earth, people work, play, marry, eat, celebrate, love, laugh, and engage with one another. By losing ourselves in this enchanting photographic tour, we rediscover an undeniable reality. Despite skin, religion, clothing, music, or politics, we are all fundamentally the same everywhere. We are just as spiritually connected as we are physically connected. We are only as safe and protected as the person next to us. Humankind is a reminder to care for each member of our global neighborhood.show more

A celebration of the commonalities that exist among the peoples of the earth, Humankind employs the stunning photography of Yoshio Komatsu to illustrate what ties us all together on the earth. Despite differences of location, custom, language, beliefs, and ethnicity, we all laugh; we all cry; we all love and we all need. We need the basic necessities of life, we need friends and associations, we need each other. Komatsu has traveled to many areas of the world capturing the lives and emotions of thousands of people with his camera. Within these pages are many very different looking faces and yet they share the same smiles or the same hopeful eyes.show more
