FAMILIES OF MAN (AND WOMAN AND CHILDREN)

our gang

“The Family of Man” was a very influential photography exhibition in 1955. When I was in college in the 60s, I came across the book based on the exhibition. Then and now, I have found the depiction of humanity very moving. There may be a Western and male bias to it—but this was 1955, after all—and also a liberal, humanist bias (which I don’t mind at all).

Subsequently there was a The Family of Woman book, followed by The Family of Children and The World’s Family.

Here’s a video version of the original:

In a similar vein, here’s a video—for UNICEF—based on the song “Imagine”:

I recently took part in two projects that aspire to the same kind of universality:
