Stay the Same


Dog takes his photo every day for a year

Lots of people have been sending me videos and clips from you tube of people growing old, growing beards, travelling around the world taking their pictures every day.  There are so many of them out there that there is now even a subsection parodying the original ones. I watched a lot of them before the project began and put my favourite up last June. Here is a link to the original post.

It’s been interesting thinking about the relationship between these films and what I am doing, which I hope will be quite different.  I think maybe the phenomena of these films is as interesting than the films themselves. Like watching  random algal blooms in a vast ocean, a You Tube film becomes popular then millions more like it appear, then millions more referencing the original one. The internet is like a weird travelling fair full of novelties, freaks and curios all crying out for you to take a peep. Then, every now and then, just for a second, someone shows you something truly funny or beautiful. Sadly, just like in real life, those moments are few and far between.
