We wish we had the ability to focus on a single project for as long as this guy has.
Artist Karl Baden, who teaches photography at Boston College, has taken a photo of himself every single day since Feb. 23, 1987.
The video above shows him aging over the course of nearly 25 years. (The clip features photos taken through Nov. 3, 2011.)
It Ain't Over Yet: 24 years, 8 months, 11 days, in 2 minutes
This time-lapse film is a compilation of (mostly) still photographs, one of several that I've made as part of a personal project entitled 'Every Day'.
'Every Day' is an ongoing visual document involving self-portraiture, in it's most literal sense, performed within a set of guidelines. Since February 23rd, 1987, I have, on a daily basis, made a photograph of my face. Reserved exclusively for this procedure are a single camera, tripod, strobe and white backdrop. A small, additional tripod and backdrop make the setup portable; it goes with me when I travel.
