***A Day in the Life of California

Photographed by 100 of the world’s leading photojournalists on one day, April 29, 1988


Reviewed August 19, 2002.
Collins Publishers, 1988.  236 pages.
Available at Sembach Library.  (OS 979.4 DAY)

Here’s another lovely photographic book.  You probably remember the Day in the Life books.  (We also have A Day in the Life of America at the library.)  They invited 100 of the top photographers in the world to take pictures all over the targeted region.  I couldn’t resist taking this one home and reading it.  It turns out that on the day they chose, I still lived in California, and my son was one month and ten days old.  My husband probably drove the LA freeways that day, so, who knows, maybe he’s in the book.

The variety of California is unsurpassed by any other state.  It should come as no surprise that the photos chosen range from stunningly beautiful to amazingly strange.  Come to the library, and take a mini-vacation!
