Product Description

The Family of Man (PB)

Created by Edward Steichen, with a prologue by Carl Sandburg

Hailed as the most successful 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." This is a classic and inspiring work, in print for more than fifty years.

"Symbolizes the universality of human emotions," The New York Times. The book, in which all of the photographs from the exhibition are reproduced, was first produced by a magazine publisher and sold in hundreds of thousands on newsstands and in airport shops. In more recent years, the book has been published by the Museum. The present Thirtieth Anniversary Edition was prepared from original photographs with all new duotone plates in 1986.
