The latest project from bestselling photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand,6 Billion Others presents the photographic portraits and transcribed responses of 500 men and women, interviewed on video over the past six years. This understated yet compelling look at ways of life both familiar and strange creates an instructive, affecting biography of modern humanity. Inspired by the idea that “every single person has got something interesting to say, and every single person has the right to say it,” Arthus-Bertrand created a questionnaire of 40 prompts on universal topics such as family, happiness, money, and love, and dispatched six filmmakers to interview more than 5,000 subjects in 75 countries around the world. About one-tenth of the resulting 3,500 hours of film is available online, with subtitles.
