This book is part of a planned series of photographic Portraits that will present people of the world in much of their diversity, exploring their daily lives and activities, and encompassing a wide range of communities, ages, genders, and cultures. This unique compilation, however, illustrates a glimpse of how different human cultures have more in common regardless of the apparent differences. Thus, as human beings, each of us (individuals or groups) will relate to one or many of the precious moments captured and presented in this book.
