13 years ago, Jeff Harris made a New Year's resolution - that is to take a picture of himself each day. And 13 years and 4,748 self-portraits later, has done an amazing and inspiring work. Let's check it out.
Jeff Harris started out from writing in a journal, a common new year’s resolution to many which he said ends up to dust after a month or two, he then switched to taking photos which takes less time to do and more creative in a sense. He started taking self-photos in 1999 armed with an Olympus Stylus 35mm film camera and currently has over 4,000 photos and counting.
Here’s a video produced by Time Magazine Lightbox where Jeff explains his project.
Time Magazine Lightbox recently featured his work. Jeff Harris’ story is truly amazing. A lot of his photos are powerful and moving. It got me in awe and deeply inspired me to document my everyday life in film. What about you, what do you think?
Back in the 1990s, Gilbert Blecken was a big music fan and wrote for his own small music fanzine. He would interview bands in between sound checks and take photographs of them. He was never a professional photographer or worked for a company; he simply did it for his fanzine. Twenty years on, Gilbert’s photographs have matured into an amazing documentation of some of the biggest music icons of that era. We caught up with Gilbert to ask him about these photographs and the fascinating story behind them.
Doug DuBois spent five summers photographing the small neighborhood of Russell Heights in Ireland to capture the essence of coming of age: the inevitable loss of youth and the imminent transition into adulthood. Those four years resulted in his latest book, My Last Day At Seventeen. The book is a visual tale told through a collection of photographs and gives an alternative perspective through a comic narrative around the same subject. This creative combination of two distinct narratives in one book not only works wonderfully in visual terms; it also serves as an essential tool that lets the reader dig deeper into the story being told, making one go back to the book over and over again, yet from a new perspective, every single time.
