“The story is biblical, mankind together whether in
a dry or lush green landscape, or urban setting. The roots — and a parting
wild thought— is that Stelios, has in some strange way updated the famous
Family of Man exhibition from the 1950s. Edward Steichen’s wide-ranging
photographic survey propelled by unsullied optimism was a global hit. There
was no duality, no downside or alternative, everything was airbrushed hope.
Nothing wrong with that, at the time it was probably needed.
It’s ridiculous to even faintly compare this book to the Family of Man but there
is a connection. Stelios presents a digital update that celebrates the real
world with all its dual aspects and contradictions.” – David Gibson
