La exposición "The family of a man" fue ideada en los años 1950 por el fotógrafo estadounidense y director del departamento de fotografía del MOMA, Edward Steichen, y su asistente Wayne Miller. Con ella pretendían ofrecer una visión general de las manifestaciones humanas, de sus singularidades y de las analogías entre diferentes grupos étnicos y culturales. La selección de las fotos duró más de tres años y se recibieron sobre cuatro millones de fotografías que tras la selección quedaron reducidas a medio millar. Considerada en su momento como la mayor empresa fotográfica jamás realizada, reúne 503 fotografías de 273 fotógrafos de 68 países, tanto profesionales como aficionados, famosos y desconocidos. Está organizada en torno a 37 temas como el amor, el nacimiento, el trabajo, la familia, los niños, la guerra y la paz. El formato de las fotografías es muy diferente, al objeto de manifestar la diversidad, ya que Steichen pretendía mostrar el carácter universal de la experiencia humana, así como la enorme capacidad de la fotografía para reflejar esa experiencia.

The richness and historical complexity of this exhibit have been overlooked, especially in the post-Vietnam decades, as critics have been quick to dismiss it as sentimental. In the context of Steichen's text, the exhibit was an appeal to the emotions, designed to move viewers to cross the ideological barriers of the Cold War. The Family of Man was prominently displayed at the American Exhibition in Moscow in 1959. Sandeen shows the exhibit to be a great deal more than a compendium of beautiful but unchallenging photographs. He also unfolds its multilayered relationship with and reflection of the values of postwar America.

The Family of Man is the most widely seen exhibition in the history of photography. The book of the exhibition, still in print, is also the most commercially successful photobook ever published. First shown at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1955, the exhibition travelled throughout the United States and to forty-six countries, and was seen by over nine million people. Edward Steichen conceived, curated and designed the exhibition. He explained its subject as ‘the everydayness of life' and ‘the essential oneness of mankind throughout the world'. The exhibition was a statement against war and the conflicts and divisions that threatened a common future for humanity after 1945. The popular international response was overwhelmingly enthusiastic. Many critics, however, have dismissed the exhibition as a form of sentimental humanism unable to address the challenges of history, politics and cultural difference. This book revises the critical debate about The Family of Man, challenging in particular the legacy of Roland Barthes’s influential account of the exhibition. The expert contributors explore new contexts for understanding Steichen’s work and they undertake radically new analyses of the formal dynamics of the exhibition. Also presented are documents about the exhibition never before available in English. Commentaries by critical theorist Max Horkheimer and novelist Wolfgang Koeppen, a letter from photographer August Sander, and a poetic sequence on the images by Polish poet Witold Wirpsza enable and encourage new critical reflections. A detailed survey of audience responses in Munich from 1955 allows a rare glimpse of what visitors thought about the exhibition. Today, when armed conflict, environmental catastrophe and economic inequality continue to threaten our future, it seems timely to revisit The Family of Man.

Shido observed that almost all men lacked the fundamental knowledge about relating to women. He learned that most women lacked the most basic knowledge of how men think and what drives men to take action. Society is composed mostly of men and women who do not know how to relate.

"American Exposures sheds light on photographs, from Arthur Mole's propagandistic 'living photographs' of American icons and symbols to the exploration of contemporary subcultural communities by the Korean-born photographer and performance artist Nikki Lee, and asserts that the depiction of community is a central component to photography. Louis Kaplan deploys a number of critical concepts and theories developed by Jean-Luc Nancy in The Inoperative Community, as well as other philosophers, and applies them to the field of photography studies. With an original approach to photography from Edward Steichen's Family of Man exhibition to Pedro Meyer and the rise of the digital image, Kaplan points to a new way to think about the intimate relationship among photography, American life, and the artistic imagination." -- Back cover.

Here is the history weve been waiting for ... erudite and entertaining ... she shows how pictures really did change our world. Her shrewd selection of over 600 fascinating photos (many in colour) illustrate a history that meets the ultimate test; open to any page and youre hooked ... and its free from tormenting academic jargon. Camera Arts This groundbreaking survey of international photography, which examines the discipline across the full range of its uses by both professionals and amateurs, has been expanded and brought up to date for this second edition. Each of the eight chapters takes a period of up to forty years and examines the medium through the lenses of art, science, social science, travel, war, fashion, the mass media and individual practitioners. These broad topics complement a fully developed cultural context whose emphasis is more on key ideas than individuals. The author also pays close attention to how contemporary practitioners, commentators and beholders have talked about specific works, the nature of photography and the photographers changing role in society.
