100 Days in Photographs: Pivotal Events That Changed the World by NIck Yapp

Much more than a book of pictures,100 Days in Photographsis a compelling visual journey through our agean odyssey thats personal and universal, immediate and timeless. To create it, Getty Images and National Geographic identified 100 days that represent defining moments of the past 150 years... and crystallized them with photographs that leap from the page to evoke joy and anger, triumph and despair. Supporting the visuals are firsthand journal excerpts, photographers on-site notes, and insightful text by photography historian Nick Yapp. From the Getty Images archive, astonishing images depict major world events: revolution in 19th-century Europe, President Lincolns assassination, the Eiffel Towers construction from 1887 to 1889, Bleriot flies the English Channel in 1909, the Wall Street crash of 1929, Germanys Kristallnacht, the British quit India in 1947, and more. National Geographics contributions illustrate scientific, cultural, and geographical topicsincluding the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, Jane Goodalls study of chimpanzees, Chernobyls nuclear disaster, the cloning of sheep, the attacks of September 11, 2001, and todays global warming debate. Page after eye-catching page reveals the emotion of an entire event or age captured in a single imagewhether of a peasants tears, of world leaders sharing a secret, or the triumph of an Olympic champion. Politics, war, crime, technology, achievement, fads, and fashion all figure into the life and legacy of these 100 days. Featuring scores of rare and unpublished photographs uncovered during its creation, this remarkable book provides new perspective on key events and personalities of the past 150 years.
