EVERYDAY

daily photography project [2006-2018]

• every day

• I select one photograph

• from those I took that day

• wherever I happened to be

• and I publish it

• without image-manipulation

I find my images in everyday life. Several times during the course of the day I stop in my tracks because something has caught my attention.

In the early 1990s, I began to carry a camera at all times. From then on I have been taking photographs of those instances. While I followed an impulse to create the images, I had no use for them. In April 2006 as a way to store the photographs, I started to display them on my website nolden.com.

Unexpectedly the project evolved. Within the neatly arranged stream of photographs I began to notice recurring themes and a particular way of capturing them. What had started intuitively became a process of self- exploration, documenting and thereby investigating my visual perception.
