A man who took a single shot of himself every day for nearly three decades is heating up online communities.
Karl Barden, photography professor at Boston College in the United States, reportedly posed for his own camera every morning for the past 27 years, starting on Feb. 23, 1987, with a total of 9,534 selfies taken.
As part of his project “Meta Comment,” Baden said he wanted to do something repetitiously. He wakes up, gets ready for work or the weekend, and then simply snaps the photo standing in the same position with the same camera, according to the Daily Mail.
The 61-year-old created a time-lapse film by compiling thousands of photos in an attempt to show how aging changes one’s appearance.
Viewers can see 24 years and eight months of his life flash before their eyes in less than two minutes.
The video, titled “It Ain’t Over Yet: 24 Years, 8 months, 11 days, in 2 minutes,” has been uploaded to YouTube.
