A Photo a Day

Imagine documenting your life, a photo every day. I was first introduced to this idea in the movie "Smoke" when the character played by Harvey Keitel sets up his camera and takes a photograph every day of the same street corner.

The idea is intriguing b ut I dont think I would actually carry it out for more than a week or two.

I came across a website that links to a project where the photographer did just that.... a photo a day for 18 years. The series of photos is compelling and does not have a happy ending.

What an amazing thing, Kathleen. 18 years! He's gone too young.
