Every day thousands of pictures are uploaded to the Internet, something we have seen for a while now is that people like to share their lives with the world by taking every-day-photos. This is an article I wrote in the January issue 2009 of Urban Lifestyle Report - New media.

  • 1. 9 One day at a time LINDA PIERRE Location: Stockholm, Sweden Blog: http://lindapierre.tumblr.com/ the enormous universe called the Internet is not showing any signs of running out of space due to too much information, not yet anyway. Every day thousands of pictures are being uploaded to sites like Flickr, Photobucket and not to forget the biggest ones of them all Facebook. People don’t seem to get enough of the attention a photo can give. Some do it to archive their photos, some to show their friends and family and others seek the stardom a perfect photo can give you. Back in 2004 Taylor McKnight started taking photos of himself and called it “Project 365”. We’ve seen many similar projects since then, like this girl taking a photo of herself every day for three years and then she made a video out of it. Noah Kalina took it a bit further taking a photo of himself during eight years and of course also made a viral video hit out of it with over 11 million views so far on YouTube and 49 000 on Vimeo. A few things hits me, there’s is no way you can have the exact same hairstyle two times in your life and why do they have to look so bored, isn’t this supposed to be a fun thing, right? And it seems like men tend to grow their hair longer as they get older. Middle age crises or what? Picture: erin MC hammer
  • 2. 10 Anyway let me get back on the path I intended to go with this article. The phenomenon of taking your own picture everyday Picture: Noah Kalina wasn’t just a hype that went away. The photo site Photojojo urges everyone to create their own “Project 365”. You might wonder why. Well if not for your own sake, like a diary, you could do it to be able to show your kids what you did and how you looked during this period of time. There are many different ways in which you can do this, it doesn’t have to be a (boring) facial picture. You could choose to take a photo of your shoes or why not do as this Canadian photographer did and take a photo of people in your neighbourhood? People all over the world already upload their pictures to different Flickr groups doing similar things like that. EpicFu has got the list of people taking the challenge at the moment. There’s no limit to where your imagination can bring you, or your company for that matter. I mean if people like seeing things grow (like beards) or decrease (beach season closing in on us) it doesn’t have to be something on a human being... Picture: erin MC hammer Think about that all you marketers out there! And let me know if you come up with a neat idea. Also check out Photojojo’s Time Capsule, a cool way of reminding yourself what you did at the same time last year. Oh time for my daily time saver... Click!
