Culled from the photo exhibit Moments of Intimacy, Laughter and Kinship (M.I.L.K.) organized by New Zealand publisher Geoff Blackwell, the 100-plus images in Family: A Celebration of Humanity represent the endless shapes, sizes and colors that families come in. Funny, moving, tragic, surprising and most often joyful, these photos show people at life stages ranging from the newborn to the elderly and the deceased, though the definition of family here seems strictly biological. Contributors include Pulitzer-winner John Kaplan, Anne Bayin (with a photograph of mother Kim Phuc, goodwill ambassador for UNESCO and the napalm victim in Nick Ut's famous 1972 image from Vietnam), UNESCO award-winner Rajib De and Quoc Tuan. The collection introduces the M.I.L.K. trilogy, which will also include Love and Friendship.
