Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Created by Rick Smolan and David Elliot Cohen, the innovative team behind the 1986 blockbuster A Day in the Life of America — the best-selling photography book ever published — America 24/7 utilizes digital photographs taken by professional photojournalists and novices alike.

Showcasing the best photographs as documented by up to a million or more participants from across the United States, the publication of America 24/7 will coincide with network television specials, a DVD documentary, a traveling exhibition of photographs, and a compelling website. In addition to the 1,000+ top photojournalists being hired by the America 24/7 team, amateur photographers from across the country will be invited to submit their own digital photographs of American life via the project's website — america24-7.com. Participants across the United States will help to create a vivid panorama of modern American life capturing the myriad experiences that take place across the nation within a week.

The creators of America 24/7 have several New York Times bestsellers to their credit, including A Day in the Life of America, A Day in the Life of the Soviet Union, and Christmas in America.
