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).

12.5 Years of Daily Self-Portraits Averaged into a Single Photograph

Earlier this month, Noah Kalina released an updated version of his everyday self-portrait time-lapse video, showing how his face changed over more than a decade. The video spans 12 years and 5 months, containing over 4,500 daily photos of Kalina’s face shot from the same angle and perspective.

Than Tibbetts wanted to see what the entire project would look like as a single frame, so he used FFmpeg to extract the frames from the video and ImageMagick to average them. The resulting image, seen above, shows how consistent Kalina was with his self-portraits over the years.

P.S. Last year, designer Tiemen Rapati did the same thing with 500 of clickflashwhirr’s daily self-portraits. That one turned out even better than this one.

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. Titled everyday, the video was a time-lapse spanning six years of self-portraits showing Kalina staring expressionlessly into the camera. The video has since amassed tens of millions of views, and has spawned countless copycat projects and videos.

Luckily for the Internet, Noah has kept up his daily picture taking, and today he uploaded an updated version of the video spanning 12 years and 5 months. 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.

In 2000, photographer Noah Kalina started his everyday self-portrait project that spawned a viral video (and countless copycats) six years later.

Kalina is also planning to release an updated version of the video that runs 7:41 min — 10 frames per second and 1 month every 3 seconds.

Start a Self Portrait per Day Project with New Everyday App

How to Duel with DSLR Cameras

“Dueling Cameras” is a… unique little short by Noah Kalina (of everyday fame) and Adam Lisagor. We love their deadpan expressions and the reactions of passers-by.

Girl Aging Ten Years in Ninety Seconds

Noah Kalina’s famous “everyday” project spanned six years of his life, but began when he was 19 years old. “Natalie Time Lapse” is similar, but begins when the subject is born and ends when she is ten years old. Even though the pose and expression are far from being as precise as in Kalina’s video, it’s quite interesting watching someone go from newborn to ten-year-old.
