The photography event of our time, M.I.L.K. (an acronym for Moments of Intimacy, Laughter, and Kinship) is a spectacular celebration of the human spirit. For two years, leading photographers from every one of the world's 192 countries were invited to submit photographs that capture and celebrate the essence of humanity. Ultimately 17,000 photographers from a staggering total of 164 countries participated, among them a myriad of award winners. From the more than 40,000 photographs submitted, 300 appear in three books, a stunning collection that features prologues from James McBride (FAMILY, May 2001), Maeve Binchy (FRIENDSHIP, September 2001), and Kim Phuc (LOVE).
