Jeff Harris has taken a self-portrait every day for fourteen years, a project the photographer claims has been life-changing - and life-affirming. "I didn't want 365 images of me sitting on the couch each day," he says. "This project has inspired me to get out there and seek out interesting things."
I had the pleasure of watching Jeff's video (pasted below) at this year's Photoville event in Brooklyn, and his story stayed with me. I particularly love the many photos of him jumping into water, a theme he addresses in the film. There are ups and downs - and a cancer diagnosis - along the way; still, fourteen years down the road, he's still taking portraits, still taking leaps.
Indeed. See more at Jeff Harris's site, here.
