Sunday, April 28, 2013 - 4:00pm
Face to Face: Portraits of the Human Spirit ($75.00) is a book of 184 stunning color portraits and text by award-winning documentary photographer Alison Wright. Warmth, dignity and grace emanate from the eyes of monks and geishas, nomads and cowboys, tribal warriors and even inspirational icons like His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Burmese leader Aung San Suu Kyi. From Asia to Africa, to the Middle East and back, this book celebrates the tapestry of humanity in all its diversity and splendor.
Alison Wright received the Dorothea Lange Award in Documentary Photography for covering child labor in Asia and is a two-time recipient of the Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Award. She travels the globe collecting raw, thought-provoking images for humanitarian organizations and publications such as National Geographic, Smithsonian, Outside and Time.
