The Family of Man

I love this book
It was gifted to me by my parents. Every time I open it I find something new.
The Family of Man is the book from The photographic exhibition created by Edward Steichen for the Museum of Modern art in 1955
It contains photos that run the gambit of life, from birth to death, relationships, heartache, daily worship, trials and tribulations, and exaltation.

Love

Babies


Loneliness

Dreamers

Joy

They used 503 photographs from 68 countries by 273 men and women, professionals and amateurs.
It's a beautiful book full of life and emotion
