It is not possible to explore all the civilisations that the human race has created over a millennia of history through a collection of photographs, but in this book we discover a collection of images from Asia, Oceania, the Americas and Africa which bear witness to the great diversity of cultures which make up the history of the non-European world.
Interestingly, these societies have similar needs, practices and activities. For example, the custom of wearing masks and the similarity of everyday items that bear traces of those who once made use of them - furnishings, clothing and work tools. Objects which offer insights into people's lives that allow us to empathise with them to some degree, leading us to recognise a common humanity, notwithstanding the distance that is imposed by our modern way of life.
