(43) A Stela incised with the Keepers of Light

From The Family of Man catalogue, Chai gathered the names of 257 photographers, shy of 16 from the 273 people claimed in the collection at Clervaux Castle. When Chai further diagnosed the list she detected some interesting facts.

• Many images were selected from assignments, from photo journalists working for News agencies or magazines such as Life, Magnum, Pix, Fortune, Rapho Guillumette, Sovfoto or Black Star.

• 60% of photographers were Americans, made up of those born in the United States, and immigrants who became citizens. Many were European photographers thus suggesting that the ensemble of pictures was built heavily from a Western point of view.
 
• A neglectable number of artists working as fine art photographers. 

• A neglectable number of artists working in other media such as film, painting and writing.

•  A neglectable number of commercial/fashion photographers.

• A neglectable number of Japanese and Asian photographers.

• 15% of photographers was women. Chai highlighted their names in yellow, leaving those that she was not sure of their gender.

• A number of photographers have achieved world-wide fame, with photo books publicizing their work, she underlined those she's heard of.

• Remaining is a large number of names going anonymous, having not enough media coverage to introduce their work.

• The exhibition was grouped by themes common to all mankind, forming a giant photo-essay of humanity, a dazzling kaleidoscope of love, birth, family, friends, work, play, conflict, hunger, worship, migration, government, fear, hope and dream.
