Five Thousand Days was an epic project which, by it’s very nature, we cannot hope to repeat for a few years and so The BPPA committed itself to producing further projects on a wide range of topics and exploiting every medium. The first collaborative project to follow Five Thousand Days was
New Years Day.

Members were invited to submit up to five pictures taken in the first twenty four hours of 2005 to form a timeline web gallery – a kind of snapshot of who was where doing what as the new year began. The photographs form a fascinating document with images ranging from the tragedy of the immediate aftermath of the Asian Tsunami to the spectacle of fireworks over the BA London Eye and the mundanity of family life in the UK.
