On Remembering the Family of Man: Still amazed everyday

Nobody does portraits like my friend James Eugene Frank. -gw
I've spent the past 25 years working for an on location family portrait studio .... probably 20-30,000 families ..... and I'm still amazed every day by the american family .... these are freelance/personal sittings over the years ....
Remember Edward Steichen's The Family of Man? I am a Baha'i today because of magazines like the National Geographic and published collections like Steichen's. In 1955 Edward Steichen organised the Family of Man exhibition in New York. Held at the Museum of Modern Art, the exhibition consisted of 508 photographs.
