Recording a life

Chris Higgins stumbles upon a man who took a polaroid of himself everyday for 18 years, from 1979 until 1997. His last photo is on the day he died, meaning he recorded every day of the latter part of his life (though some photos are missing), in some 6,697 photographs. Here's a link to the site where all of these photos are uploaded. It's an interesting way to record a life of this man, James Livington, especially considering they capture so many biographical details. You can reconstruct quite a bit of his life, just from the photos, his family and friends, his interests and hobbies, his regular habits, and his declining health from cancer and the lead up to his ultimate death.
