Overview


One Day—millions of perspectives. On May 15, 2012, people from around the globe will pick up their cameras to record their lives, A Day in the World will be the result. Professionals and amateur shutterbugs alike are featured in this beautiful edition, the most comprehensive photographic documentation of daily life ever made. Tribal areas and urban sprawl, intimate portraits and riotous events, A Day in the World captures a global scope with the candor only a photograph can capture.

The book was the brainchild of the movement Aday.org, a unique project that celebrates the power of photography to encourage cultural understanding. Based on the philosophy that everyone’s life matters, contributors come from areas as varied as the Earth itself—farmers, fishermen, office workers, and award-winning photo-journalists. Harnessing the reach of the Web, an interactive site was the hub for the project, and then the best 1000 images were selected by an international jury. Ultimately, A Day in the World is not only an around-the-globe ticket for the armchair traveler—it is an invaluable record of the people on our planet, sure to spark reflections on humankind for generations to come.

A Day in the World launches from Aday.org, a branch of the foundation Expressions of Humankind. The foundation’s council includes Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Sir Richard Branson, singer/songwriter Robyn, and a host of other luminaries and advocates for the project.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Put together by ADay.org, a branch of the foundation Expressions of Humankind (an organization dedicated to scientific research and education focused on the photographic image and the written word), this collection includes a foreword by Sir Richard Branson and an introduction by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, both of whom emphasize the project's aim to "document humankind" and "create the potential for a better world." The images each capture a slice of life on May 15, 2012, and are often organized according to theme—getting ready for the day, buildings around the world, and self-portraits. Though equal billing for professional and amateur photographers is noble in concept, the collection would have been better served by more careful organization and editing. Unfortunately, a day is not narrow enough a scope to provide a sense of universality. That the thematic organization of like-tasks seems to follow a Western clock only further undermines the project's aims. 1,000 color photos.
