Jeff Harris: 4,748 Self-Portraits
“It started simply enough in 1999. Jeff Harris, a photographer based in Toronto, took his first self-portrait, something he has since repeated every day. His visual diary now amounts to 4,748 photos and they tell a very personal story. They show the passing of time, some fairly normal moments, but also some difficult ones. In November 2008, Harris was diagnosed with cancer, and his experience with it — his surgery, radiation treatment, eventual paralysis in one leg — all gets visually documented by his project. The video above, originally appearing on TIME’s web site, takes you inside Harris’ project. The clip runs 5 minutes.” Via @OpenCulture
Taryn Simon: Shot True
“It’s human nature to look for purpose or an answer in everything and I think it’s unconfortable to accept purposelessness. I think I am constantly trying to find some sort of truth or reality and it does make you question this thing that we all kind of rest upon which this is searching for…a reason”
Taryn Simon questions meaning and photographic truth while exploring the evolution of her work in filmmaker Matt Black’s new short. Playing upon an uneasy marriage of image and context, Simon blurs the lines between reportage, conceptual art and portraiture.

Pete Eckert is a totally blind person. But through his photography, he proves that he IS a visual person, he just can’t see.
“Sound gives an image just like light gives an image. Sound wraps around images, and if you’re in the sun shadow, it will give you a description of where and what is the thing that you’re looking at”
