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.

The Family of Man was an ambitious photography exhibition curated by Edward Steichen, the director of the New York City Museum of Modern Art's (MoMA) Department of Photography. According to Steichen, the exhibition represented the "culmination of his career. The title was taken from a line in a Carl Sandburg poem. The Family of Man was first shown in 1955 from January 24 to May 8 at the New York MoMA, then toured the world for eight years to record-breaking audience numbers.

Steichen had invited photographers to submit photographs for consideration, explaining that his aim was to capture the gamut of life from birth to death -a task for which, he argued, photography was uniquely suited. The exhibition toured the world for eight years, attracting more than 9 million visitors.

Family of Man rare book for sale. In 1955, Steichen opened the exhibition The Family of Man, the most universally popular photography exhibition ever organized (Icons of Photography, 16) and still considered the medium’s landmark show (Roth, 146).

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. By showing the little moments we all share this book reminded me how communal all of our experiences are.

The Family of Man has been around for many, many years. I had forgotten about my love for this book so I gave it to my children and friends for Mother's Day this year. If you remember this awesome book, buy it again. If you are seeing it for the first time, please purchase. You will be riveted by the words and photos. Good purchase for any occasion.

The Museum of Modern Art is responsible for sending the original photographs a Singapore publisher who used top-notch printing techniques and on high-quality paper. and paper was used to create a book of the highest quality today! There is no parallel.
I have read this book oever and over again, first using the one published by a newspaper publishing outfit;and bought copies for my children and my aged grandfather. Since the MMA republished it, all my grandchildren are getting a copy as birthday presents. The meaning of each photograph is easily understood by all cultures, and is a timeless portrayal of life from love, birth, living life and eventually, death.

A stunning collection of images by photojournalists. Beautiful and engaging photographs assembled during the early fifties, this came from jaw-dropping show at The Museum Of Modern Art in New York. It still lives on the pages of this book.

The Family of Man show sparked my passion for capturing photos of people and their gestures and humanity is wildly varied conditions around the world.

This now classic collection of photographs, prose and poetry depicts the human family in all our varieties and similarities. In the maddening fast pace time we live in, where we are presented with false dichotomies and "news" that promotes division and futility of purpose this book - this magnificent book - draws the reader into a calmer, slower pace, awe inspiring appreciation for the beauty and wonder of our species. When I first opened its pages I was skeptical - prepared to be disappointed by another commercial knock off that pretends to be one thing and ends with a solicitation to buy into some self serving, blame evoking finger pointing view, on the one hand, or an unrealistic, romanticized characterization of a simple and simplistic view of the good old days. An hour into the book I was completely captured by the poets and artists portrayal of the human family. This book will become a center piece of my family library - a resource of hope in a time of perpetual crises. Do yourself a favor - obtain a copy and rediscover our human family.

Fantastic photos. I can sit down with a cup of coffee and page through these and not get bored. As it says on the cover, 503 pictures from 68 countries. Well worth the investment! We do, after all, remember moments, not days.

I got one since I was a child, I actually saw that exhibit being 10 and my father bought me there this album. As a school girl I was spending so much time looking at the pictures, imagining the action behind them, their meaning. This is the most powerful photo album ever. I just bought it as a present to someone who really helped me and he loved it too.
This is a wonderful book that documents one of the best photographic exhibitions in history. During a continental road trip, my friends and I had the opportunity to tour the exhibition in its now home of Clervaux, Luxembourg. We had only planned a brief visit, but became so entranced by the exhibition that we discarded our schedule and spent the entire day touring the exhibition. The staff had to ask us to leave at closing time.

I initially purchases this book as an memento, but have for 7 years used it as an inspirational tool for my creative writing courses. I ask my students to write stories to accompany the photographs--an activity that is always successful and extremely enjoyable. If you enjoy photography exhibitions for the stories they tell (as individual pieces and as a whole collection), I can't recommend this highly enough.

One reviewer suggested that the exhibition is out of date (portraying a 1950s western culture ideal in the face of Communism and nuclear threat). While one cannot argue that the curator, Edward Steichen, was influenced by such a world climate, it in no way detracts from the many emotional and private moments captured by skilled photographers. In fact it enhances it, lending pieces intensity, and anchors the exhibition firmly in history. It seems ridiculous to criticize an exhibition for historic relevancy.

If you are looking for a documentation of an amazing exhibition or just a coffee table book for hours of browsing (or a tool for teaching creative writing ;), 'The Family Of Man' should more than fulfill your needs.
