Said to be the most successful photography exhibition ever assembled, The Family of Man opened at MOMA New York in 1955.

Photographs made in all parts of the world, of the gamut of life from birth to death.” A classic and inspiring work, The Family of Man has been in print for more than 40 years.   This is a hard back first edition from 1955 and is in very good condition.
