Alaska-based artist JK Keller has been taking selfies way before the world 'selfie' ever came into play, snapping self-portraits of himself every day for the last 16 years. As it turns out, JK started the project "out of spite" back in October 1998 when he was 22, after he bought an expensive Nikon CoolPix 900 camera and his girlfriend asked sarcastically if he was going to use it every day.
"I told her yes, and resolved to do so. Inception!," he wrote on his site. And so, he did, snapping a selfie every single day with the same blank-faced expression. According to Yahoo!, he now has over 5,000 photos of himself and doesn't plan to stop anytime soon. In fact, he plans to keep taking them until the day he dies.
JK called the photo project, "Living My Life Faster" and created an over 3-minute video with the photos he has taken. In the time-lapse video, you can see all of the pics he's taken from the age of 22 to now flashing by quickly, showing how he's changed over the years.
To create his collection, JK spends a minute a day snapping a selfie and 30 minutes every 10-12 days to transfer the photos from the camera to the site he uses to compile them. That, my friends, is dedication.
