The Family of Man, 30th Anniversary Edition e-book
by Edward Steichen,Carl Sandburg
A friend showed me The Family of Man and I am so glad I found it now. The show that Edward Steichen curated over 60 (!) years ago is still so important today-especially since our country is growing increasingly divided. I wish I could afford to send this book to all of Trump’s team, congress and the senate because there is no way you could look at this collection and not celebrate the oneness of man. Beautiful photographs from 68 countries brought real tears to my eyes.
