About this title


The past 100 years was one of the most turbulent periods in the history of mankind. For the first time, the technology existed to allow the events that shaped the century to be recorded and relayed around the globe at increasing speeds. The most impactful photographs ever taken have been selected for this volume. Together they provide a map of the events - from the epic to the intimate, the heroic to the barbaric - that literally changed our world.

From the Publisher:

The Wright Brothers conquering the air; Martin Luther King Jr. making his "I Have A Dream" speech in Washington; the massacre on Tiananmen Square. These images do more than report. For the millions who have seen them they have come to symbolize whole epochs, and become part of the universal visual memory in a way that few works of painting have managed to do. The humble new photograph, at its best, render the making of history visible. This book allows them to tell their story.
