PDF Global Faces

Book description

This book's foreword gives a good summary of its purpose, "[T:]his book is amazing . . . in that you see countries in these faces. It's unsettling how so often the portraits match your preconceptions of the countries they turn out to represent; and how often those preconceptions are exploded on the very next page . . . the subjects constantly surprise you." While I love the concept of this book, it just wasn't amazing in its execution. Often the photos are out-of-focus (and not in an artistic way—they're just out of focus), or are not very well composed; the organization is a bit confusing (the photos are organized by continent, but within each continent section the countries are introduced seemingly randomly, not organized alphabetically or by any other apparent organization system); and the book seemed to generally lack an artistic quality (in the way photos were arranged, the way the book was designed, etc.). Some of the photos are compelling, but it seemed like they were few in comparison to the total number of photos. I had high hopes for this book from the outset, but was left quite disappointed.
