Five Thousand Days is an extraordinary collection of photographs charting one of the most momentous periods of change in human history. With an introduction by the celebrated newspaper editor Sir Harold Evans, it represents the very best of press photography over the last fifteen years. From the collapse of Communism in 1989 to the present day; our times have seen a rapid and unprecedented shift from a world dominated by the uneasy stand off between two superpowers, to one threatened by the unpredictable menace of global terrorism, suicide bombings and rogue states. Selected by the British Press Photographers Association from the work of its members, this collection encompasses everything from shattering global events such as September 11 to startling, surprising, humorous and beautiful pictures of the politics, sports, arts and entertainment of the period.
 

Harold Evans is one of the most influential names in the newspaper world. He was the editor of The Sunday Times from 1967 to 1981 and editor of The Times from 1981 to 1982. He was named Editor of the Year in 1973. Evans is internationally recognized as an authority on the use of photography in the media; his definitive book on press photography, Pictures on a Page, first published in 1978, is still in print 25 years later. He has received lifetime achievement awards from, among others, the International Center of Photography and the British Press Awards. In 2004, Harold Evans was knighted for services to journalism.
 
The British Press Photographer's Association (BPPA) was founded in 1984 by UK press photographers in order to promote and inspire the highest ethical, technical and creative standards within the profession, and to raise outside awareness and appreciation of their industry. Counting among its membership many of the world's leading photographers, on assignment in every corner of the globe, the BPPA truly represent the broadest selection of newspaper, magazine and agency photographers today.
