PSA Uses ‘Photo a Day’ Concept to Draw Attention to Domestic Violence

Photographer Noah Kalina’s Everyday project features one photo of his face every day, and has been running since January 11, 2000. Kalina uploaded time-lapse videos created using the photos in 2006 and 2012, and both videos quickly went viral online. Not only did they amass millions of views, but they sparked a new phenomenon as well, as people around the world started snapping daily photos of their own faces and uploading similar videos to the web.

The video above is one that uses the same idea popularized by Kalina, except it’s very different from the rest (warning: it’s a bit disturbing).

App To Let You Preserve Your Life with a One-Second Video of Each Day

First, there was a competition, which suggested that one second of video could capture a unique, meaningful moment. Then a young woman from LA used roughly one second of footage per day to document a year in her life. And then finally, Cesar Kuriyama’s similar video documenting his frivolous year off work following his 30th birthday went viral.

Apparently, the idea of documenting each day of your life with a one-second video clip has taken off. And following a flurry of “I wanna do that!” comments, Kuriyama has decided to make the process that much easier for others wishing to follow in his and Madeline’s footsteps by creating the 1 Second Everyday app.

12.5 Years of Self-Portraits by Noah Kalina in 7.5 Minutes

On August 27, 2006, photographer Noah Kalina uploaded a highly influential video to YouTube.

The video has since amassed tens of millions of views, and has spawned countless copycat projects and videos.

It contains over 4500 daily portraits and runs a little less than 8 minutes in length. This translates to roughly 10 frames every second, and 1 month every three seconds.

Jump Man: An Amazing Self-Portrait-A-Day Video Five Years in the Making

After the viral success of Noah Kalina’s self-portrait-a-day video everyday, there has been no shortage of people copying the idea and creating their own versions of the project. However, not many come close to the awesomeness and creativity of the video above, created by a guy named Mike (Thisnomyp on YouTube).
