This stunning collection of photography, by renowned photographer and author of Built by Hand, Yoshio Komatsu, documents our undeniable human connectedness-- as we pass each day alone, with family, with friends, or engaged in the simple journey of life. Around the earth, people work, play, marry, eat, celebrate, love, laugh, and engage with one another.
By losing ourselves in this enchanting photographic tour, we rediscover an undeniable reality. Despite skin, religion, clothing, music, or politics, we are all fundamentally the same everywhere. We are just as spiritually connected as we are physically connected. We are only as safe and protected as the person next to us. Humankind is a reminder to care for each member of our global neighborhood.
