Architects of Peace
by Michael Collopy

The Individual Faces and Personal Essays of 75 Peacemakers

Nelson Mandela · Coretta Scott King · Mother Teresa · Thich Nhat Hanh · Arun Gandhi · Jimmy Carter · Sister Helen Prejean · Oscar Arias Sanchez · His Holiness Pope John Paul ll · His Holiness the Dalai Lama · Many More

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 tri-tone photographs of the peacemakers with their own emotionally charged essays, more than half written expressly for this book. Collopy captures and 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 fro 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.
