‘This now classic book is the permanent embodiment of Edward Steichen’s masterpiece – a creation that has been hailed as the most successful  and inspiring exhibition of photography ever assembled. ‘The Family of Man’ opened at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, in January 1955 and thereafter travelled throughout the United States and much of the world. In the pages of this book are reproduced all of the 503 images that Steichen described as ‘photographs’ made in all parts of the world, of the gamut of life  from birth to death with emphasis on… daily relationships…. Photographs of lovers and marriage and child-bearing, of the family unit with its joys, trials and tribulations…. Photographs concerned with man’s dreams and aspirations and photographs of the flaming creative forces of love and truth and the corrosive evil inherent in lie.’
