In August 2006 Noah Kalina posted a video titled, “Noah takes a photo of himself every day for 6 years.” it includes 2,356 photos, one taken each day, and has been viewed over 26 million times. The description for this video simply reads, “January 11, 2000 – July 31, 2006. 2356 Days. A work in progress.”
“A Work in Progress.”
William A. Ewing, a well-known photography author, curator, professor, and museum director, called the project, “a phenomenal amplification not just in what he produced and how he did it, but how many people the piece touched in such a short period of time. There is nothing comparable in the history of photography.”
In September 2012, he posted the second installment in the Everyday project, “Noah takes a photo of himself every day for 12.5 years” this time the video description read, “January 11, 2000 – June 30, 2012. 4514 days. A Work in Progress.”
He created a mobile app called Everyday for iphone, so that you can take a photo of yourself every day, set up reminders, line up your face to match each day using overlays, and make a movie of your life.
He’s a prolific photographer and his Everyday Project is just one of many. You can find more of his work here: noahkalina.com
