Noah Kalina - Everyday

Noah Kalina - Everyday
(2000 - Present)

Noah Kalina has been photographing himself everyday since January 2000, each self portait is added in sequence each month to his website (click here)

The composition and expression remain mostly unchanged image to image, and our attention is drawn to his background and often erratic hair. In 2006 he uploaded 6 years of photographs onto Youtube as a video, receiving over 18 million views he has subsequently invented a new genre copied by many. 
As the Kalina's gaze remains largely unaltered for the (six photos a second) 6 minute duration of the video,  the work becomes less of a exploration into the self and more the passage of time.
