In May of 1997 I went to Zurich to visit Simon, who
had been working there for 3 months on a job swap. One
day wandering aimlessly with my camera I visited the
Kunsthaus where there was an exhibition in progress
- a series of photographic images that depicted the
same people and their relative significant others over
a period of about 20 years. Not unlike seven
up, it was amazing to see not only how the peoples'
realtionships to each other had changed, but how physcally
different they looked as the years went by, some in
fact "getting better" with maturity. I often
look back and cringe when I think what I used to look
like at different stages of my life. Strangely I have
little of no record of many of them. I decided that
all had to change. On that afternoon I decided "I
should take a photo everyday".
has taken me almost 5 years and a digital camera to
get my act together. I am not aiming for amazing images,
meerly a record, and whilst I don't really look that
different in many right now, I think I will in the years
to come. (Yes, with all good intentions I aim to do
this for a few years).
Already I have noted some cringe worthy wardrobe choices.
