America 24/7 : 24 hours, 7 days : extraordinary images of one American week by Rick Smolan( Book )

16 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 1,205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

May 12-18, 2003, was a watershed week in the history of photography. For 24 hours a day for seven days, digital photographers across the nation were invited to take pictures of their cities and towns, friends and neighbors, and families and pets. More than 25,000 photographers responded. They ranged from first-time digital photographers to university photography students to top international photojournalists and newspaper shooters-including 36 Pulitzer Prize winners. As the largest, most talented group of photographers ever assembled, the America 24/7 team shot more than a million digital images during this one-week period. The very best of these photos, more than 1,200 in all--are showcased in this extraordinary visual time capsule of American life--capturing a stunning diversity of people, cultures, and accomplishments across America. Together, these images form a rich mosaic of America at a pivotal point in the country's history. America 24/7 is a national portrait that is at once hopeful and nostalgic, modern and mythic. The America 24/7 project was created by Rick Smolan and David Elliot Cohen, the team behind the most successful photography projects in history, including the New York Times #1 bestseller A Day In the Life of America. As the inaugural event of the digital photography age, America 24/7 looks beyond the manufactured imagery of Hollywood and Madison Avenue to capture an authentic hometown portrait of America. A must have album for every American home

Spectacular photographs and a detailed text present the most intimate and comprehensive look at Vietnam ever assembled. To create this unusual portrait, 70 photographers from fourteen countries were given unprecedented access to a country that is just now emerging from decades of war and isolation." "Magnum photographer Bruno Barbey rode along with thousands of pilgrims down the Swallow River to the Perfume Pagoda. Pulitzer Prize-winner Jay Dickman traveled to the northern highlands, where he photographed the ancient Hmong tribe. And former Life photographer Dick Swanson went back to Vietnam for the first time since the war, photographing its lingering effects on the people of Quang Tri Province." "The photographs are complemented by captions written by Fortune magazine editor Colin Leinster. In addition, noted travel writer Pico Iyer shares his impressions of a country just awakening from twenty years of isolation. Pulitzer Prize-winner Stanley Karnow explores the long struggle the Vietnamese have waged to preserve their homeland. And Vietnam Investment Review correspondent Peter Saidel gives an insider's look at Vietnam as socialism and commerce meet face to face."--Jacket
