Much more than a book of pictures, 100 Days in Photographs is a compelling visual journey through our agean odyssey that's 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.
Page after eye-catching page reveals the emotion of an entire event or age captured in a single imagewhether of a peasant's 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.
