Mariana Cook: Justice

Faces of the Human Rights Revolution

Published by Damiani
Introduction by Anthony Lewis.

Featured portrait, of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, is reproduced from <I>Mariana Cook: Justice</I>.New York-based photographer Mariana Cook is known for her character studies of persons both in and out of the public eye. Among her previous bestselling photobooks are Mathematicians, Faces of Science, Mothers and Sons and Fathers and Daughters. Her latest collection introduces us to some of the women and men who are the faces of the human rights revolution, among them former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, the 39th American President Jimmy Carter, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and the Burmese democracy activist Aung San Suu Kyi. Cook traveled the world to photograph and interview her subjects, and the accompanying texts--some written by the subjects themselves, others edited from interviews with them--share their insights into the nature and importance of human rights, and their reasons for devoting themselves to that cause. Through them we are reminded of the power of a single individual--one face, one voice--to transform the world. These human rights pioneers seek no personal gain: any rewards are the benefits that we all enjoy when the rule of democratic law protects us. The pictures and the words in this book show the strength of human character that has made human rights such a powerful movement across the world in our lifetime.

Mariana Cook: Justice
Archbishop Desmond Tutu

Mariana Cook: JusticeFeatured image — of Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the veteran anti-apartheid activist and peace campaigner often described as "South Africa’s moral conscience" — is reproduced from Justice, best-selling photographer Mariana Cook's new book of portraits from the forefront of the international human rights movement. Tutu is quoted: "And isn’t it extraordinary, in a world where might does sometimes seem to be right, that in the end it is goodness that prevails? We were involved in a struggle against the injustice of apartheid. Many times we seemed to be overpowered. The apartheid government had all the paraphernalia imaginable. Even so, goodness ultimately prevailed, and there were individuals whose actions have transformed the world for the better. Someone like the English Anglican bishop Trevor Huddleston, who was the second Archbishop of the Church of the Province of the Indian Ocean. I remember the first time I met him; I was walking with my mother, and the white priest tipped his hat as he passed us. I had never seen a white man pay his respects to a black woman. It made me realize the injustice of inequality, and the ability of religion to bridge the overwhelming gap between the treatment of blacks and whites." continue to blog
