Following the critically-acclaimed landmark 2-volume African Ceremonies—for which they won a United Nations Award of Excellence—photographers Carol Beckwith and Angela Fisher have collaborated once again with Faces of Africa, an unparalleled collection of more than 120 photographs. Drawn from their work over the past thirty years, this book is an inclusive look at the people and cultures from across this broad continent.

With their unique eye for Africa and its inhabitants, Beckwith and Fisher have brought forth a masterpiece in the genre—and a moving, personal tribute to some of the most beautiful people on Earth.
