I was browsing on facebook, exploring the theories discussed in JP Mangalindan’s article, basically that people have become accustomed to uploading photos of themselves regularly. I know a few people that purposefully take a photo of themselves every month or so. The thought process behind this is “I look good today, I’ll take a photo of myself, maybe it will change peoples view of me for the better” or even: “I want to show people I look good, so I’ll dress up and take a photo”.
What I did notice from these photos on facebook, is that they are all much the same: taken in mirrors; or at arms length, and each persons collection of photos of themselves are identical to one another.
From my observations, I have decided to photograph myself every day for the next 50 days.
Below is a Video by Noah Kalina who photographed himself everyday for 2356 days and is coming up to 21 million views on youtube.
Noah has continued his ‘Everyday’ work on this website.
