At the end, photographer's notes accompany a reprinted thumbnail of each photo, illuminating the photographer's thoughts and methods in taking the picture, and including more information about the photo's location and subject matter. Each photographer is given an opportunity to reflect on how the picture might resonate in the theme of the global family. Such reflections are rooted in actual experience and tied to the pictures, so the result is fascinating.
