5.0 out of 5 stars Incomparable, 4 Sep 2001
By 
This is more than just a collection of fine photographic portraiture. It is a spellbinding trip into the other World and lives of the subjects-you feel for them, want to know more about them other than just a name and vocation. You are almost in their presence. This is through exquisite print quality and attention to detail as well as the all too apparent immediacy of the compositions. Any person can pick up this book and lose themselves amongst these people for hours. Wonderful!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Amazing Discovery of People, 27 Oct 1998
By A Customer
I was 13 when I first saw this collection of photographs. They awakened my mind to the reality of a world different from my own. Currently, I use the pictures as writing prompts which my sophomore students use for biographical writing. The powerful pictures move the students beyond their own everyday suburban lives into a world they will otherwise never see.

5.0 out of 5 stars A true example of the power of photography at its best !, 29 Jun 2001
By A Customer
I am a lover of books, a photographer myself and a lover of all things creative. To me this collection of images holds more power and strengh than anything i have ever seen. If you own this book please show it to someone who never reads books let alone photography books and sit back and watch their reaction. Upon opening the book i feel as if i am truly opening a page on the soul of the human race. Once seen, these images will be with you for ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars ., 13 Mar 1999
By A Customer
This is fine B&W work, indeed. But, the review by "A reader from dallas, tx , September 19, 1998" is beyond compare. Have they ever written anything of substance? Do they talk to friends and co-workers this way? When *was* the last time they got out? Do they even have a clue? All questions this book will not answer. Although, that is not a bad thing, mind you.
