This powerful book combines the extraordinary photography of the Day in the Life series with the sensibility and storytelling that made Sisters and Mothers & Daughters beloved by millions. On April 8, 2005, 50 of the worlds most talented female photographers will spend 24 hours capturing a day in the life of American women. The result will be a rich tapestry reflecting the full spectrum of womens lives: their daily challenges, their joys and accomplishments, and their changing roles in the family, the workplace, and the community. The images will reflect how women see themselves, as well as the unexpected, dramatic, and sometimes humorous moments revealed during the course of an average day. The more than 200 memorable photographs will include portraits by Sharon J. Wohlmuth. Along with a dozen essay-length personal profiles from Carol Saline, narrative captions and extended quotes will provide a context for the lives reflected in each picture. From the well known to the unknown, the women portrayed will embody the many incarnations of the American woman. Their stories, conveyed in the intimate, resonant style of Wohlmuth and Salines Sisters, will speak to women of all backgrounds.
