9780864926739: Fair Trade: A Human Journey

Through the use of lush, light-filled landscapes, intimate and intriguing portraits, and delicately detailed stories, this riveting and visually stunning work carries us across continents and around the globe to understand and comprehend the complexities of the human journey that encompasses fair trade.

A captivating storyteller with a deft eye for detail, author-photographer Éric St-Pierre has crafted a book that makes the story of fair trade, its implications and its limitations, clear to us. We learn about production methods, the effect fair trade has on peoples' lives, and the advantages and challenges of a trade option based on dialogue, transparency, and respect.

St-Pierre introduces the reader to the most common fair trade products — handicrafts, coffee, and cocoa, as well as the lesser known ones — shea butter, quinoa, and guarana. Along the way, we discover how far we have come and how far we still have to go.

From the Inside Flap:

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.
