Human Tribe
Alison Wright
• An intimate book of portraits celebrating our diversity and remarkable human tapestry
• 161 individual faces from around the globe portray the universal human spirit
• Startling images taken by an award-winning
National Geographic
contributor
A page-turner in the most exquisite sense, this book of over 160 portraits expresses the emotive beauty and
grace of the human face. Documentary photographer Alison Wright traveled to every continent to capture
the diversity of the human tribe, from toddlers to those who’ve lived a lifetime, and from South America to
Africa, Asia, and points in between. Some of the people photographed are privileged, some live ordinary
lives, and others live close to the land and in communities that may not last another generation. Collectively,
these surprising studies of the human face remind us of our common bond and the inherent dignity in being
ourselves.
