Time-Lapse: Incredibly Dedicated Teen Takes One Selfie Per Day for 7 Years

This might be some sort of record for PetaPixel, because the longest selfie time-lapse I remember us publishing covered six and a half years of life. This one, put together by impressively dedicated YouTube user Hugo Cornellier, covers a full 7, from ages twelve to nineteen.

It’s fascinating to watch him grow up from a distinctly boyish looking 12-year-old to a much more manly 19-year-old who can (and did) grow a full beard. All of adolescence and the beginnings of adulthood packed into one minute and thirty-four seconds. Really, we have only one complaint… would it have killed him to smile just ONCE!?


Update: After looking further, we have shared longer projects. This father photographed his son for 21 years.
