A strangely disappointing collection. Though roughly organized into regions, there's little in the way of guidance or orientation, and there is a section of people the photographer knows, posing, which is antithetical to the stated intention of the book. Many of te photos are blurry, not artistically so but as if they are blown up details from larger photos that had something else as their focus. The overall effect is frustrating and claustrophobic. I should be thinking about the human family or some such. Instead, I kept wondering if I had the right pair of reading glasses. Instead, read the excellent [b:Traditional Peoples Today: Continuity and Change in the Modern World|2605348|Traditional Peoples Today Continuity and Change in the Modern World (Illustrated History of Humankind, Vol. 5)|Goran Burenhult|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1266959296s/2605348.jpg|2629994] or [b:Material World: A Global Family Portrait|486749|Material World A Global Family Portrait|Peter Menzel|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1175171456s/486749.jpg|475029], or the classic Steichen [b:The Family of Man|197193|The Family of Man|Edward Steichen|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1172604700s/197193.jpg|190735].
