In extraordinary, life-affirming photos taken around the world—from developing villages to urban centers—over the last 40 years, a photographer makes the bold case that what unites us is more powerful than the borders that divide us.
Hailed as “photography's new conscience,” photographer and psychiatrist Dr. Glenn Losack has spent a lifetime traveling the world, determined to extend healing, hope, and compassion. With a camera in hand, he goes places that tourists rarely visit, including slums, alleys, and dark streets. He's seen struggle, but he's also seen our shared humanity: families playing together, laborers working, the devout praying to their gods. Dr. Losack has found resilience, joy, passion, and celebration in communities the world over, even in places plagued with corrupt government, poor infrastructure, and disease.
The 240 captivating photos in The Bonds We Share, taken in India, the Dominican Republic, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Morocco, Peru, Tunisia, Sri Lanka, Egypt, the United States, Eastern Europe, and elsewhere, serve as a remarkable retrospective of Dr. Losack's work and reveal an essential truth: we may come from very different cultures, far-ranging geographic corners, belief systems, and economic circumstances, but we all share the same desire to work hard, raise families, and lead fulfilling lives. In this spectacular volume, Dr. Losack interrogates timely notions of difference and portrays the commonality of people from different cultures around the globe.
