This book has been with me since 1955, and it surely was the foundation for the photographic aesthetic I've been working on ever since I first was galvanized by the images.

One of the greatest photojournalism exhibits ever mounted. While some of the Western clothing appears dated, the poses and interactions captured from all over the world are timeless. If you ever doubted we are one family, look at these photographs. The title is really what it is all about.

After watching a wonderful documentary on Steichen (for the 4th time) I decided to look for this book, found it online at MOMA but lucked out even better - found a copy at my local library bookstore!

i wanted more info about the photos and the photographers. i know that wasn't the idea of the exhibit.

What a shock to see my aunt photographed in here. That alone gets a five-star rating for the collection.
