'4748 Self-Portraits' by Jeff Harris

In an effort to record the year of his life leading up to the millennium, Jeff Harris began a project in which he either takes a self-portrait or has his picture taken by a friend each day and then posts the results on his website. The project, which began long before the widespread popularity of blogging, Facebook and Flickr, allows viewers to follow one photographer along on his adventures.

The images range from completely solitary, auto-timed self-portraits to photographs inspired by a collaborative spirit with whomever Harris encounters on a given day. Regardless of the mood, location or activity at the center of any given image in the series, they all show a marvelously open and generous approach to both diaristically recording and sharing everything from intimate moments to athletic adventures with a wider audience.
