The people, yes by Carl Sandburg( Book )

44 editions published between 1936 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 2,033 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An epic prose-poem, "The people, yes", is in many ways the culmination of Sandburg's work as a poet. He crafted it over an eight-year period, fusing the American verancular with the details of history and contemporary events. Sandburg's immersion in the Lincoln era had given him an informed sense of history, and he saw striking parallels between Lincoln's time and the Depression years. Believing that economic inequity lay at the root of all social injustice, from labor conflict to racial and civil strife, he responded to the economic and social upheavals of the 1930s with The People, Yes, his testament to the seekers and the strugglers, the people who were the counterparts of his own immigrant parents

La exposición "The family of a man" fue ideada en los años 1950 por el fotógrafo estadounidense y director del departamento de fotografía del MOMA, Edward Steichen, y su asistente Wayne Miller. Con ella pretendían ofrecer una visión general de las manifestaciones humanas, de sus singularidades y de las analogías entre diferentes grupos étnicos y culturales. La selección de las fotos duró más de tres años y se recibieron sobre cuatro millones de fotografías que tras la selección quedaron reducidas a medio millar. Considerada en su momento como la mayor empresa fotográfica jamás realizada, reúne 503 fotografías de 273 fotógrafos de 68 países, tanto profesionales como aficionados, famosos y desconocidos. Está organizada en torno a 37 temas como el amor, el nacimiento, el trabajo, la familia, los niños, la guerra y la paz. El formato de las fotografías es muy diferente, al objeto de manifestar la diversidad, ya que Steichen pretendía mostrar el carácter universal de la experiencia humana, así como la enorme capacidad de la fotografía para reflejar esa experiencia
The family of man : the photographic exhibition by Edward Steichen( Book )

3 editions published in 1955 in English and held by 1,305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Conceived as an exhibition for MoMA in New York in 1955, with a catalogue published both by Maco Magazine Corporation and Simon and Schuster, The Family of Man has been heavily criticized, usually for its sentimentality and its disingenuous simplicity. Although indeed sentimental, The Family of Man was not as simple as it looked. ... The de-politicization of the photography was in fact a calculated piece of political image-making, stating that American values were the only universal values, and that the world could be one big happy family under the beneficent guidance of Uncle Sam. ... One of the ironic aspects of the project is the way its whole aesthetic derives from those German and Soviet exhibitions and propaganda books of the 1930s. The sententious tone, the grim determinism, the tendentious ideological stance, even the design, place The Family of Man in the propagandist mode of modernism rather than in the utopian wing to which it nominally aspires. Nevertheless, and this is an important point, it contains many fine photographs."--The Photobook : A History Volume II / Martin Parr and Gerry Badger. London : Phaidon, 2004
