There is no one photographer to give credit to for the famous “Family of Man” exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art. However, the curator can be given credit for finding all the photographers: Edward Steichen. The exhibit, for those who haven’t seen it or heard of it, is essentially a photo essay of reasons the different cultures around the world are really all one culture.

It was created at the height of the Great Depression, and was first released during World War II. Among the photographers that participated and allowed their work to be used in this exhibit are Dorothea Lange (photographer of “Mother Migrant”), Paul Berg, Russell Lee, David Moore, Josef Breitenbach, Fred Plaut, and Nick De Morgoli.
