One Man Took a Photo of Himself Every Day for 15 Years

It’s always astonishing to see how people change over time. Especially when that change is captured in such a detailed way as YouTuber Jordan Wilson did it.

At the age of 13 years and five months, Wilson started taking a photo of himself every day. He would stay in front of the same background and would keep the same expression on his face.

After 1,000 days of a photo a day, Wilson used the photos to make a timelapse video that showed him getting 1,000 days older. He did it again after five years of starting the project, then after 10 years, and now, after 15 years.

The latest video is understandably the most impressive. It is compiled out of all the photos Wilson took for 15 straight years, starting on December 25, 2007, and ending on December 25, 2022. Watching the 4:27-long clip, you can witness how a 13-year-old boy becomes a 28-year-old man.

Wilson also posted the video on Reddit, where he shared some interesting facts about the project. He revealed that he used two same curtains as his background for the past 15 years. He revealed that the robe seen in some of the photos isn’t a martial arts uniform, but simply a dressing gown.
