060297_std1Jamie Livingston took a poloroid picture every day from from March 31st, 1979 through October 5th, 1997, his 41st birthday.

He stopped on October 5, 1997, because… well, because he died.

Although some photos have gone missing from the collection, 6,697 Polaroids remain. The collection, dated in sequence, has been organized by his friends Hugh Crawford and Betsy Reid into an exhibit at Bard College called "JAMIE LIVINGSTON. PHOTO OF THE DAY: 1979-1997".

They are also visible on a website (which goes down a lot due to heavy traffic).  Feel free to go there, but get out your hankies…
