The Countdown

My story is a picture story. I began a visual diary on 27 december 2019 – the day after my 49th birthday – with the intent of making and posting a self-portrait every day, counting down to my 50th birthday on 26 december 2020.

On 13 March I began working from home and it was soon undeniable that the project would expand (or contract) beyond its original scope. it became a story of a life spent (mostly) inside my studio apartment. no longer were the days filled with repetitive views my commute, but of my bathroom and my kitchen window and my fire escape. and any reflective or distortive surface I could find.

The thing is, while my daily visual diary ended on 26 december, I remain inside mostly.
