Which are correct:

1) In the upcoming book, the company is going to present photos of its products since twenty years ago.

2) In the upcoming book, the company is going to present photos of its products over the past twenty years.
3) In the upcoming book, the company is going to present photos of its products during the past twenty years.

Gratefully,
Navi

1) would not normally be said that way. To use "since", we usually use a starting date such as "since 1960", or "since the year 2000".

2)Would be the most natural sounding to me, and perhaps the most commonly used wording.

3)Is also good and might be said often.
