Captivating Self Portrait Project
Back in 2006 we were all introduced to the Noah Kalina, the man who took a photo of himself every day for 6 years, posted to YouTube and it became a viral sensation. We have all now seen different takes on the internet meme. But today a new “self photo” project emerged that caught the eye of Fstopper writers and we all chimed in with our own critiques.
A video has not been made up yet but I went ahead and grabbed some photos from the project to share here. Amazingly this was all done by one camera, one tripod, one man. The only explanation to the project is a few words at the end describing the thought process behind the images.
An extended visual musing on:
The fleetingness of existence.
The sheer futility of human endeavour.
The extent to which internet meme culture pervades modern life.
Being a forgetful bastard.
Here are a few quotes from other Fstopper writers commenting on the images from the project.
Jaron Schneider – “Shockingly Good!”
Chris Lambeth – “Such clean images. Like nothing I’ll ever see again.”
Jerrit Pruyn – “I don’t know guys his white balance is off.”
Tam Nguyen – “Damn talk about sensor dust.”
Mike Wilkinson – “They really look over processed to me. I can’t imagine they were captured like this in-camera.”
Jerrit Pruyn – “Out of focus. I think they would look better in Black and White.”
Now it’s your turn. Here are a few of my favorite images from the project in question. What are your thoughts?
