This latest book in the Day in the Life series focuses on the amazing diversity of Africa. In February 2002, 100 top photographers from 26 countries were dispersed throughout Africa--a continent of 53 countries--for a historic round-the-clock photo shoot. The result is a stunning collection of photographs showing the incredible contrasts in the geography, people, customs, and lifestyles of Africa. The foreword by Archbishop Desmond Tutu and the introduction by Kofi Annan provide context for the complexities facing the African continent, from struggles for independence and political stability, to fighting the AIDS epidemic, to developing stable economies. The photos depict a wide range of human conditions, including everyday life in cities and villages, with people practicing a variety of customs and religions. Among the collection are photos of Kenyan runners in training at dawn in the Great Rift Valley, an Arabic breadmaker in Egypt, a marketplace in Ghana, AIDS-afflicted patients in a hospital in Zambia, a "soul-eater" in Burkina Faso, and a manhood ritual in South Africa's Transkei region. All publishing profits from the sale of this book will go to AIDS education programs in Africa. Vanessa Bush

I am also partial to this book, because the proceeds go towards AIDS prevention in Africa.
