Joy With Love Author:M.I.L.K. Inspired by the 1950s landmark exhibition, "The Family of Man," M.I.L.K. began as an epic global search to develop a collection of extraordinary and geographically diverse images portraying humanity's Moments of Intimacy, Laughter and Kinship (M.I.L.K.). This search took the form of photographic competition - probably the biggest, and almost cer... more »tainly the most ambitious of its kind ever to be conducted. With a world-record prize pool and renowned Magnum photographer Elliott Erwitt as Chief Judge, the M.I.L.K. competition attracted 17,000 photographers from 164 countries. 300 winning images were chosen from the over 40,000 photographers submitted to form the basis of the M.I.L.K. Collection.
The winning photographers were first published as three books titles Family, Friendship, and Love in early 2001, and are now featured in a range of products worldwide, in eight languages in more than 20 countries. M.I.L.K. is also a traveling exhibition.
The M.I.L.K. Collection portrays unforgettable images of human life, from its first fragile moments to its last. They tell us the rich bond that exists between families and friends is universal. Representing many diverse cultures, the compelling and powerful photographs convey feelings experienced by people around the globe. Transcending borders, the M.I.L.K. imagery reaches across continents to celebrate and reveal the heart of humanity.« less
