Fair Tade : a Human Journey

ÉRIC ST-PIERRE

 

The most complete book of photographs on Fair Trade

In 350 captivating photographs, this book takes us to the four corners of the planet and right into the lives of the women and men – artisans, peasants, workers – who produce various commodities that are part of our daily lives, people at the bottom of the chain of production who are thirsting for justice. Through light-filled and colourful landscapes as well as intimate and affecting portraits, this journey around the world in 15 countries of Asia, Africa and Latin America presents 14 fair trade sectors – from the most common, such as handicrafts, coffee and cocoa, to the lesser known, such as shea butter, quinoa and guarana. The author introduces us to producers, describes the processing chain for each product, outlines the advantages and challenges of an option based on solidarity and helps us discover the true face of fair trade: women and men who are building a fairer world.

“Fair trade proposes an alternative that is based on ideas of social justice, product quality and care for the environment. […] This book is a sign of hope that another world is possible.”


Dr. Francisco Van der Hoff, member of UCIRI, in Mexico,
and co-founder of the Netherlands’ Max Havelaar label
