While much of the world's attention focused on whether computer chips would function, 100-plus outdoor and nature photographers chose locations for their beauty, and also for their special, personal significance, for a one-day photo shoot on January 1, 2000. They provide captions, including the location, and impressions, reflections, or emotions experienced at that moment. The images appear in longitudinal order, beginning at Fiji just west of the International Date Line and proceeding westward. The project was conceived and directed by Tefft, who has background in journalism and law. Oversize: 11x11. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

An unique effort to do something like this. Many of the photos are not that great after all but the point is: they were taken at the dawn of a new age. I just wish the publisher had increased the no. of entries twofold to really emphasize the significance.
5 stars for the tremendous effort but the deduct is for that fact that it's not really worldwide. After browsing it I thought it's for North America flora and fauna (flip a few pages here and there and you still see USA and Canada), with a bit from other continents till I bought it and realise it's meant to cover most regions of the world. Where's the greater part of Asia? and the Poles? South America? They could have invite those not in the team to submit photos that they lack, better luck next time but it will be another thousand years.
Excellent coffee table but once the reader grasp the idea behind it will also wonder like me.....where's the rest of the world?

Daybreak 2000 is the result of a phenominal concept - a view of sunrise around the world on the same day. Most of the images in the book are some of the most impressive I have seen - from the breath of the Bald Eagle to the Chinese forests (such distinctive landscapes!).
The book starts at the international dateline and works its way west with the sun, showing the location of each shot with a rotating globe on each page.
While 01/01/00 may not be a requirement for such books, the fact that it prompted such a great work showing the beauty around the world makes it all worthwhile.

Since the Twenty-First Century did not really begin until a year later, the purpose of this book seems kind of erroneous. Despite this, the photographs are--for the most part--very pleasing. I was tempted to give it only 3 stars due to the juvenile miscalculations of when the century actually began and the fact that there is already an overabundance of "pretty" pictures in the world. Instead, I went with 4 stars. Hey, anybody can get drawn in by prettiness.

Although the photos are excellent in Daybreak 2000,there is a static quality to the book, as there is with most landscape photography. Landscapes have been around for thousands of years and aren't likely to change at the new millennium. On the other hand, I agree with reviewer Tom Donadio,that Dawn of the 21st Century is a much better photographic essay of the new millennium. It shows people celebrating the new millennium as well as gorgeous once in a lifetime fireworks pictures. There is a broader range of pictures also, and comprises over 500 pictures from over 300 photographers, both pro and amateur. For my money, it's Dawn over Daybreak.

WHILE SEARCHING FOR A WAY TO REMEMBER MOVING INTO THE NEW MILLENNIUM, I SAW THE CHARLIE ROSE INTERVIEW WITH ROGER TAFT. I COULD NOT WAIT TO SEE THE PHOTOS. THIS BOOK SPEAKS TO THE PLACE AND TIME WE LIVE IN. DAYBREAK 2000 IS ALL I NEED TO BE REMINDED OF THE BEAUTY THAT GREAT CARING PHOTOGRAPHERS CAN CAPTURE. THE DEDICATION SAYS IT ALL, AND I WON'T SPOIL IT FOR YOU BY QUOTING IT. THIS IS TRULY "THE" QUINTINSENTIAL MILLENNIUM KEEPSAKE.

Just was able to glance through my copy of Daybreak 2000. I must admit this is a truely great book with great photos. I only gave it 4 stars because there is another book out called "Dawn of the 21st Century" which has an extremely diversity of photos also taken as we entered the new Millennium. It has over 500 photos from 116 countries. It may be a little more money, but it is also a "Limited Edition" and I had added it to my library. Daybreak 2000 is a great book to have, but I'll pick "Dawn of the 21st Century" above it.

I chanced upon this book at a museum bookstore and have finished reading it as soon as I got it. I am really impressed by the idea behind this book and the editor's philosophy behind printing this book - we need a lot more books like this which help raise people's consciousness about preserving the natural beauty of this earth in the wake of the crass destruction of natural areas that occurs around the world. I look forward to more books by this author.
Each individual photographer shares with the reader his/her special love for that "part " of the world.Allowing us to feel the "cold crisp air" as well as the clarity of the deep ocean waters... Congrats to all who were involved with this fantastic idea of beginning the YEAR 2000 this artistic way.Didn't want the last page to appear! You can't help but absolutely LOVE this display of professional photography. .
