In Tom Young's trilogy of books, the common thread is time: the marking of time in one's personal life and the events that unfold; the marking of time in society in which one can see change on the landscape and in our towns, homes, and cities; the marking of time on our planet Earth, in which we see the impact of human life on our planetary home.

With this trilogy, Tom Young has made a lasting impression in the world of photography and art in how he renders time in our collective and individual lives.
