Description
"Published to commemorate the 150 years since the idea for the Red Cross was born at the Battle of Solferino in Italy, Humanity in War traces the history of the largest humanitarian organization in the world through its remarkable photographic archive." "Part of an international campaign, these iconic images serve to document the realities of war and the effectiveness of the now omnipresent Red Cross. They reveal and promote what can be achieved when aid to the suffering is given without discrimination." "They are also a history of the evolution of photography itself. Ranging from the very first days of photography - the American Civil War, for instance - to the work of modern-day photographers and photojournalists including James Nachtwey, Sebastian Salgado, Eric Bouvier, and Nick Danziger, the images speak for themselves and are reproduced in exceptional quality."--BOOK JACKET.
