Architects of Peace: Visions of Hope in Words and Images

Overview

Through their portraits and words, Architects of Peace conveys how diversity of culture and opinion can be united through a central goal of peace.

Overview

Inspired by Marian Wright Edelman's call for world leaders to close the widening gap between humanity's promise and its performance, photographer Michael Collopy set out to document the visions of seventy-five of the world's great peacemakers -- spiritual leaders, politicians, scientists, artists, and activists. Through their portraits and words, Architects of Peace conveys how diversity of culture and opinion can be united through a central goal of peace.

Architects of Peace couples Collopy's stunning tritone photographs of the peacemakers with their own emotionally charged essays, more than half written expressly for this book. Collopy captures an extraordinary breadth of people, ranging from renowned political figures such as Nelson Mandela and Cesar Chavez, to artists such as Maya Lin and Robert Redford, to little-known peacemakers such as Bosnian diarist Nadja Halibegovich and Oakland school teacher Ida Jackson. Among those featured are leaders from more than twenty-five countries, sixteen Nobel Peace Prize laureates, and pioneers in film, literature, and music.

Architects of Peace presents figures who often sit at the very center of bitter political conflicts yet who have followed their convictions with tireless dedication. In seventy-five powerful statements they reveal both their personal experiences and their visions for the future. Created to record the achievements of the past century and to inspire the world as it begins the next, Architects of Peace is a moving testament to humanity's diversity and its potential, demonstrating what the world's cultures can and must achieve in order to guarantee our future.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Reprint of a 2000 work about which Book News wrote: Presents b&w photos by Collopy, of 75 people, some prominent, some less so, some living, some deceased; these people were selected because they have held to their convictions and contributed in some way to world peace. With each portrait is a statement by the person, ranging in length from a few hundred words (Elie Wiesel) to a couple thousand (Reverend Jesse Jackson). The whole is attractively presented in an oversize format (11.5x11.5<">). The intent is to showcase altruistic achievements and to inspire emulation. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From The Critics
Photographer Callopy sets out to bring over seventy of the world's peacemakers in one book: Architects of Peace pairs his photos with their words and opinions, examining cultural and social differences, changes, and achievements of the past century. Much more than an art title, this embraces modern peacemakers and their work.
