You never know when your life might change forever. For Hugo Cornellier, it all happened in the form of a time-lapse video which went viral like wildfire all over the Internet. He took a selfie of himself for seven long years and blended all of them in one single video. Sounds amazing, right?
His video portrays him aging from 12 years to 19 years of age. The video has been shared thousands of times and has been seen by almost two and a half million people. He wishes to continue doing so for the rest of the life.
It was then, when he decided that he'll start his own photography project.
...except when he was away from home. "Almost every single one of my pictures is taken in my family home in Pointe-Claire, Quebec," he says.
"A few are taken in miscellaneous places such as school, friend's houses, work or holiday. Some are even taken outside, when I happened to have my laptop.
"When I went to Cuba this year for a week, I used my mom's iPad to keep taking my picture everyday, I didn't want to miss any."
