A 2008 Retrospective: a good portion of my year.
All images and videos (except for footage of my vimeo friends opening panels I sent, Aaron's trip video footage, and the Obama image) were created by myself throughout the year 2008.

One year ago, inpired by Pirata, (vimeo.com/pirata718) I started a portrait project on flickr. flickr.com/photos/newsinger/sets/72157619846857180/
One self-portrait every day for one year. I had just got home after being seriously ill in hospital for 6 months and it seemed to be a good way to keep a photographic journal of my recovery. Looking at it now, the whole thing reeks of narcissism but it was a tough year for me so what the hell.

In 2008, I walked through China - 1 year, 4500km. I let my hair and my beard grow. This is the resulting video. Add me on FB: ▶ facebook.com/crehage on TW: ▶ twitter.com/crehage or drop by on my site: ▶ crehage.com
▶ I never finished my original goal of walking to Germany. Instead, I walked for a year and roughly 4500km, passed the Gobi desert, and then decided to stop walking for now.
▶ All of the distance from Beijing to Ürümqi was completed solely on foot, straight good old walking. There are instances where you can see me in the video sitting on a plane or riding a boat, but those are during breaks I had to take from walking, either to sort out bureaucracy issues or to take care of some personal things.
▶ I had been planning this trip for over a year before I even started, and getting as far as I got was an experience for which I am very grateful.
▶ Obtaining the necessary visa for a trip like this was not very easy, hence I had to go back to Beijing a few times to resolve some issues.
▶ This is not a strict "1 pic a day" video, because I wanted to make it a bit more alive by adding some additional movement. Sometimes during the film you would follow me turn around, or something would happen in the background. I tried to capture these moments to make the video more interesting.
▶ If you liked the music I used in this video, get it here: The Kingpins - "L'Aventurier" http://bit.ly/RXOMaz Zhu Fengbo - "Olive Tree" http://bit.ly/UDsHT7
▶ The core of this project is in actually my blog where I have posted my extensive travel diary, starting from day 1 (Nov 9th 2007) and describing every single day until the end one year later.
