Howarth & McLaren: Family Photography Now

What a beautiful and inspiring book this is! A survey of 40 photographers’ approaches to photographing a diverse range of family groupings, the factor that unites these projects is the honesty and sensitivity of the portrayals, which moved me to tears on several occasions. The writing is as tender but unsentimental as the images, and together they offer a beacon of tolerance and hope in a world that seems sadly lacking in these qualities at the present time. A reference I will undoubtedly return to repeatedly.
