Family of man 2

In 1999 Alastair Firkin suggested the Project “Family of Man 2” to LUG members. Modelled on the original exhibition (1955) it was conceived as a prospective look at the world from 2000 to 2005. 500 photos were selected by members of the group and published in 2008.

6 photographs were chosen for the catalog to represent the diversity of the project, and from different continents where “men” live.

The photography on the left is from Lluis Ripoll. Indifference, Mercat de la Boquería, Barcelona.
