100 Days in Photographs
100 Days in Photographs: Pivotal events that changed the world, through photographs and written word
National Geographic and Getty Images have joined forces in a book that visually and through written word retells many of the most stunning moments of history over the past 150 years, since the advent of photography.
For each entry, a breathtaking photograph sets the stage for the storyteller’s words. Learn the details of each event and its impact on history with eyewitness quotes and sidebars that chronicle how photography advanced through time from author Nick Yapp, historian and master storyteller.
The vignettes build on each other bringing history to life in an iconic fashion that puts the often-chaotic events into context. Beginning with England’s Great Exhibition of 1851 and ending with the devastation of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, 100 Days in Photographs is a keeper to be thumbed over and over again.
