Aging 20 years in quick motion: You can see the process thanks to the selfies of this photographer

first_imgNoah Kalina made an incredible 20-year projectTake a selfie every day with a neutral expressionThe result of the 20 years is part of a video The passage of time is something inevitable and influences all people. Changes in weight, wrinkles on the face, gray hair, there are many symptoms that may appear after the passing of the years. Showing how time affects a person is not easy to achieve, since the most recognized effects do not appear until several years have passed, however, the desire of an American artist motivated him to achieve it. Photographer Noah Kalina, from New York, made an incredible project for nothing more and nothing less than 20 years. During all this time, this artist dedicated himself to taking a photo of himself with a totally neutral facial expression, in order to show the world the great physical changes that occur over time.This project, whose author he dubbed “Everyday,” was the result of hard work and Noah’s perseverance over so many years. It began in January 2000 and although he already showed in previous years how his work was progressing, it was this week that he managed to reach 20 years in which every day he took a photo of himself.

Some have decided to follow in the footsteps of Noah Kalina and simply see their own aging, while others have wanted to show others as a gender change.center_img Comparative aging.
