The Bonds We Share
Images of Humanity, 40 Years Around the Globe
- Intimate portraits of fascinating subjects from the unique, humanizing perspective of a psychiatrist, in the gripping style of top photographers Steve McCurry, Dorothea Lange, and Sally Mann, whose books continue to sell well. The apt naming of the author as "photography's new conscious" comes from author, photographer, and educator Matthew Bramberg.
- Book has the international focus and global reach of classic high-selling titles like Material World: A Global Family Portrait (Counterpoint, 1995, 54,600 RTD) and National Geographic: The Photographs (National Geographic, 2008, 38,200 RTD).
- Author’s images have been seen online by over 40 million people, but this is the first time his work will be in book form and the book will include never-before-seen images. Author will draw upon his large and rapidly growing social media following—5.3 thousand Flickr followers and 67 thousand Facebook followers—to promote, tease, and hype the release of the book.
- Timely topic makes this perfect for socially conscious and globally minded people, gives it a publicity hook, and speaks to the importance of transcending borders to combat rising tides of nationalism, and the book’s appendix of charitable organizations and activist causes provides ways to get involved.
- Stunning package with 240 full-color photographs and illuminating captions. Author is an extraordinary photographer whose work has been in National Geographic (both in print and online), Asian Geographic, and Popular and American Photography, and his photos have been chosen three times as Kodak’s “Photo of the Day” and showcased on a huge marquee in Times Square. He was hailed as “photography’s new conscience” and his work is owned by celebrities including Yoko Ono, Ricky Lake, and Nancy Grace.
