One mans life in photos: Every day for 18 yearsMikey 23 comments
It's rare to come across a story like this on the Internet these days, and this particular story is very compelling. What sets this one apart from others is the lack of any actual narration or dialogue, leaving it up to your own imagination to fill in the blanks.
This series of photos was taken by a man every day for the last 18 years of his life, including the day he died. Browsing the photos in consecutive order you start to get a sense of the man and his life, which reveals tales of both happiness and sadness.
I have hand picked a few below with my own narrative to give you an example. You can browse the entire photographic collection here.
19th March 1980: This woman makes regular appearances early on. Who is she? A lover? A family member?
10th June 1980: The man himself. He appears to work in film.
5th December 1996: The man shows this pose many times throughout, almost as if he has a headache.
3rd April 1997: Something has happened to put him in hospital. But what? The woman is with him again.
6th June 1997: He appears to be loosing his hair, and I would hazard a guess its from chemotherapy. He has cancer.
24th June 1997: He has become diabetic, or he was diabetic all along. It's hard to know but this is the only photo indicating he had the disease.
30th July 1997: Back in hospital for more chemotherapy. There's the woman again.
30th September 1997: Still in hospital, but in a different room. This room appears to have life monitoring equipment.
5th October 1997: Speaks for itself. Well done to him.
7th October 1997: 2 days after the ring photo. Is that a wedding dress? Stunning. Look at how she gazes at him.
25th October 1997: That last photo his camera ever took, the day of his death.
