365 days photo project

6 years after concluding "Photo Diary", a project that lasted almost 2,5 years (May 2008-December 2010) and for which I had to take a new photo every single day, I decided to repeat it again.
On Sunday, January 1st 2017 I started photographing using the same idea, "a photo every day". I changed 2 things though. First, I would take the photos using solely my mobile phone and secondly, I would upload the photos on my Instagram account.


6 χρόνια μετά την λήξη του “φωτογραφικού ημερολογίου”, ενός πρότζεκτ που κράτησε 2,5 σχεδόν χρόνια  (Μάιος 2008 – Δεκέμβριος 2010) και στο οποίο η πρόκληση ήταν να βγάζω μια νέα φωτογραφία κάθε μέρα, αποφάσισα να το επαναλάβω 6 χρόνια αργότερα.
Την Κυριακή 1 Ιανουαρίου 2017 ξεκίνησα να φωτογραφίζω  πάνω στην ίδια ιδέα αλλάζοντας ωστόσο δύο πράγματα. Πλέον οι φωτογραφίες θα γίνονται μόνο με το κινητό μου τηλέφωνο και θα φιλοξενούνται στο λογαριασμό που έχω στο instagram.
