He Has Taken A Selfie Every Day From Age 12 To His Wedding — And He's Not Stopping

Over 25,000 photos so far.

At 12 years old, Hugo Cornellier's dad showed him a camera with time lapse capabilities and some of the projects he made. After further research, Cornellier realized that there weren't many teenagers featured, so he decided to create his own project.

And he has taken a photo every day from 2008 to the present.

The now-21-year-old manually stabilizes the photos so his face stays in the same part of the frame in each photo. Over the last nine years, he has amassed over 2,500 images. They often show him at home with a similar facial expression, although sometimes he is in different locations, with other people, different hair styles, clothes, etc. He then edits the photos and uploads them to his YouTube channel and Reddit. 

The stopmotion project recently got a special addition when Cornellier took his daily photo at his wedding.

On August 30, he married Julianna Cornellier. Following the nuptials, he edited a video that showcased the photos of his 9-year project. The video shows a young 12 year old Cornellier growing into a young man, then to a groom.

The wedding could have served as a brilliant ending to the project, but Cornellier has no plans to stop taking selfies. In fact, part of his motivation for the project is so he will have something special to give to his kids.

He wrote on Reddit, "Imagine being able to watch a similar video that one of your parents made. Part of why I'm doing this is because I know how crazy it will be for my kids/relatives to see when I'm older."

Cornellier added, "I plan on continuing until I am physically unable to continue. I don't see any reason why I would ever stop. Seeing my whole life flash in front of my eyes will be so fascinating once I'm older."
