Publisher description 
  
The family album of planet earth  
  
Photographer Uwe Ommer shares with us his four-year project, a "Family Album of Planet Earth." Overwhelming in its magnitude, this project is truly extraordinary.  
  
Stopping in over 150 countries in all corners of the world, Ommer carefully selected the families which best reflected each society's traditions and social conditions. Many of the portraits have appeared in exhibitions and magazines during the course of the project; now that the work is finished, TASCHEN brings it all to you in one volume.  
  
Ommer chose to photograph each family in the same way, against a white background and with identical lighting. All of the traditional elements of a documentary photograph are removed, leaving only the people themselves. The result is astonishing.
