I have owned the photo collection The Family of Man since its original printing, and finally had to discard my old worn copy, which had fallen to pieces. But I missed it, and decided to try to locate a copy somewhere. It shouldn't have surprised me to find that the exact original edition is still available. These photos, to my experience, cannot be matched in their raw power to create emotion in the viewer--emotion that confirms, each time we visit them, our connection to all humanity.

Format: Paperback
This is simply the best collections of photographs that I have ever seen. The book dates from the 50's, but the subject matter... humans... are the same today. Buy this for yourself, of as a special gift for a special person, and you'll not regret it. (I only wish it were still published in hard cover)

Format: Paperback
The photos are top notch. The organization and message of the book are wonderful. I've always had this book in my home as an adult. My only criticism is the quality of the paper and images in this particular printing of the book.

Format: Paperback
First time I saw the pictures collected by Edward Steichen was in the permanent museum of the exhibition, Clervaux in Luxembourg.
I was keeped almost in silence from entering to exiting and the message of the pictures was striking to me then - and 15 years later it still is.
This is a collection of pictures from all the world, picked between Thousands to be the best pictures to describe the family of man as we ALL are. No matter of colour, religion, origin or political believe we are all sons, fathers, lovers, hungry, thirsty, at times fearful and at times playful - WE ARE ALL ALIKE!
This message is as important now as it was in the 50` and looking at extreemist and the war of terror, you can only wonder how come we have learned nothing in 50 years.
The book brings me back to Clervaux and the thoughts about life, and each time I stop at a different picture or text, that captures the essence of where I am at that time of life. The book is universal not only to man but also to moods.
However happy I am to own the book it is nothing compared with the exhibition in Luxembourg. I can only say that I returned and will return again, and for the full experience of these pictures I will recommend it to all.

Format: Paperback
I have given this book as a gift many times over the years, and can't recommend it enough. The photographs are beautiful, giving the viewer a sense of what is common in the overall human experience. Simple, straight-forward in content, and very moving. An essential volume of photographs.

It seems I've owned this book forever and never tire of browsing through it. The beautiful black and white photos are timeless and just as applicable to the stages of life in 2001 as they were in the fifties. My favorite photography book.

Format: Paperback
Edward Steichen's 1955 exhibition preserved in book form. The Family of Man is a touching, beautiful, horrifying, funny, tragic, poignant collection of photos. Loosely grouped by subject; birth, death, laughter, fear, hunger, the pictures strike us like sudden blows. My father gave me this book when I was fifteen and I must have bought twenty copies since then, presents for people I cared about deeply.
I cannot recommend it highly enough.

While vacationing in Germany we decided to take a daytrip to Luxembourg. The collection of these photos were kept in a castle on a hill there. We spent 2 hours walking through the exhibit staring at each of them. We learned a life's lesson in one afternoon about similarity and difference. No matter how different all the cultures in our world seem to be, they all have several things that are common to each and that is joy and sorrow. This is an important addition for collectors as well as "arm chair" sociologists because it's about your family - the Family of Man.
