Jeff Harris' 13 Years of Self-Portaits

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?
