The Arrow of Time

Diego Goldberg’s family has been taking pictures of themselves every year since 1976. The last set of pictures were taken this year making it thirty years since this family first began their journey recording their images. Each year on June 17th no matter where they are or what they are doing they stop and take a picture staring without expression straight into the camera.

It is really interesting to see the change in each member of the family with age. It is like the hands of time have been stopped to capture one moment and lock it in place. Each year is locked in time but tied to all the others.

Click here to visit The Arrow of Time website. Don’t forget to watch the ABC video that is on the website. Below I have included is a video of the pictures year after year kinda superimposed over one another. I suggest visiting the website even if you watch the video.

There are two other websites at the bottom of the page that I will link to here as well. Both have copied in their own style what The Arrow of Time pictures have done.

    Wow – thanks for finding that! I think the concept is so cool and if you can do that over time, it’s so entertaining. I’ve got the 8 years in my private school plus a few more. I think I need to work on posting it for entertainment…

    I am thinking of starting something like this and posting it on a page on this blog. I think it is really interesting.

    I would love to see yours!

    This is great.

    When my son was born I started taking photos of him every day.
    In 42 months I have only missed about 15 days.

    Photography is so fun.

    Mad William,
    My husband gets upset at me because I take so many photos of the kids and everything else. He asks me how we will ever look at them all. Guess what? When we were in the States missing our life in France we spent a good two hours looking at all the family photos and the photos I had taken for my old Alsace photoblog. It was wonderful.

    Most interesting project. The same day every year – a photo.
    We have lots of photos, but have never thought about this way of storing them and present them.
