This marvelous book with its rich human pageantry provokes an old question: what is the good life? Since the dawn of history, this enquiry has motivated the making of art as well as philosophy. But the many answers to it … were never as radically shrunk as they were in the 19th century, when the good life became confused with the desires and achievements of a tiny minority.

We often talk about the super rich, the top 1%, but there also are a lot of people who The Other Hundred is bringing focus on that we need to be paying attention to.

In a world where media messaging is managed, where foreign policy is as much under the influence of proxy interests as it is a ‘moral imperative’ … there has never been a greater need for an endeavor such as The Other Hundred. It is time for us all to reconnect with our own sense of humanity, on a global scale, and there is no better way of doing this by using the power of photography more honestly.
