One Year’s Worth of Breakfasts Captured in a Single Photo Collage


If you ever have enough patience and dedication to capture one photograph of something each day for an entire year, you should think about creating a collage with the photos once the project is completed. Tiffany Yung snapped photos of breakfasts she ate during 2012 and then created this photo collage once the year was over. She writes,

This is the culmination of my year-long “project.” This is everything I ate for breakfast in 2012 (350 days of breakfast…the 6 days missing are the days I either didn’t get to eat breakfast, or forgot to take a picture). I ate a lot of oatmeal and cereal and bananas and bagels and “jook” (congee) this year. Some mornings, breakfast was “lavish,” while other mornings were smaller and plainer because I had to rush out the door. I love breakfast and I try to never miss it. It can really make or break my day.

You can find a high-resolution version of the collage here. This could make for a neat poster for most subjects — especially the growth of a newborn baby!

    “(350 days of breakfast…the 6 days missing are the days I either didn’t get to eat breakfast, or forgot to take a picture)” Yes, because there are 356 days in a year.

  • ennuipoet

    Well, there is a perfect metaphor for the state of contemporary photography.

  • Samcornwell

    Several years ago British artist Ellie Harrison documented every meal for a year – – Yes, really.

  • DamianMonsivais

    and a lot of years ago it started when Stephen Shore did this a couple of times with his 4×5 camera.

  • ruffy

    People complain about instagram food shots, this is pointless beyond words.

  • cynical

    The next article i expect to see here is someone photographing their poo for 365 days and writing something like “the days i didnt poo was either because i didnt eat much the previous day, or i didnt have time to go”

  • DamianM

    Its just overdone.

    When it started it was great with Stephen shore.
    noooooowwwww its just overdone

  • Jason

    Pointless. This is what the Facebook/instagram/camera phone generation is giving us? And being featured and reported on???

  • 9inchnail

    Yeah, because having 365 days in a year is just too mainstream.

  • 9inchnail

    ONE photo of your breakfast is overdone. Hundreds of them… that’s moronic.

  • 9inchnail

    Million dollar idea right there: Take before and after shots of your food. Food on your plate and later in the ceramic bowl. Stop: even better, photograph your poo with a photo of your meal right next to it. Now that is art. No one steal my idea, I’m gonna sue the sh*t out of you (and take a photo of it afterwards)

  • 9inchnail

    Those are actually more interesting than the photos of freakin’ breakfast. Where’s your featured article on this site?

  • DamianM

    But hes producing that’s the “shat”
    hes doing something.

  • Lucas Saugen

    YEAH! WHERE’S MY FEATURE ARTICLE. (not really) Just felt like yelling a bit.
