About

I have started this for no political reason, I have no agenda to push, nothing to sell. In that respect you might consider it just another addition to the data smog. But I’ve been keeping a diary every day since 1984 and this is just an extension of that.

I started out intending to document a whole year, every day, as attractively as I can, while sticking to simple rules, which are:

  • One photo, and only one photo, per day: but every day. It will have been taken on that day.
  • I will not have gone out of my way to take the photos specially. I will just document whatever I happen to be doing. Photos are not staged or posed.

However, once I got to the end of year 1 I decided to just keep going. At the time of writing (Feb 2014) 900 days have just passed and I intend to keep going indefinitely.

By the way, you can piece this together from info on the site but in case you were wondering — I am an academic at the University of Manchester, UK. I have sold a few copies of photos in various forms (framed, in calendars, digital etc.) but I am not a professional photographer. Almost all the pictures on here have been taken with a good, but compact camera — currently (since August 2012, albeit with a few weeks’ gap after I dropped it on a road in Tasmania and had to have it repaired), a Fujifilm Finepix F770EXR camera.

And one more thing: All photos on this site have been taken by me and are © Andrew Whitworth 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014. They cannot be reused, adapted or republished without permission.
