Organized into family, landscape, battlefields, legacy, and mortality-and including many works not previously exhibited or published, this is a sweeping overview of Mann’s artistic achievement of the past four decades.” (Catalogue)

Book Jacket for: 1968 : a revolutionary year in photographs1968 : a revolutionary year in photographs
“1968 has gone down in history as the year of social and political movements, of global protests against the existing social model. Tens of thousands marched the streets, calling for an end to war and oppression. There were space missions and epochal murders, while Hippie culture and the Beat Generation ran wild and the wave of pacifism conquered the theater. This book presents images which best represent 1968 in every context. The talent of the best photographers of the time, retraces and recounts this fateful year, so full of major events.” (Adapted Syndetics summary)
