Young Polish designer/photographer Paweł Kadysz has a thing for so called 365 projects, where he publishes a photo each day for a year (or similarly long stretch of time). In fact, Kadysz is so taken with these long-term, discipline-demanding projects, that he launched a web platform dedicated to their very existence called “tookapic”. While they require a certain amount of commitment, these daily photo projects are touted by Kadysz as a great way to break out of one’s comfort zone and really grow as a photographer. He even describes the sensation of being “addicted” to his camera and daily photo taking. Kadysz’s latest project, The Daily Life of Darth Vader, is timely not only for its subject, none other than the Sith Lord himself, one Mister D. Vader, but also for its feeding of our cultural obsession with a glimpse into the everyday life of public figures. Granted, this is a fictional character, but it still plays on that collective fixation. Not quite a year, but rather 60 days, Kadysz’s Darth Vader project ended with the premiere of Episode VII, and garnered lots of buzz. Oh, and did we mention that the entire collection is basically a series of selfies by way of a self-timer. Awesome achievement anyway you slice it.

Just an update on a favorite post from a while back…. North Carolina-based designer Brent Holloman decided to create a new silhouette of his daughter Vie for the first year of her life. With only four weeks left of this inspiring project, thought we’d share Holloman’s progress. What a great tribute to his daughter, both professionally and personally. Be sure to check out process photos on Holloman’s blog… some of these pieces are physical works, and these shots don’t do the level of creativity and ingenuity Holloman employs much justice. This dude is on top of his game, for sure.

Wilmington, NC designer Brent Holloman is dedicated to tracking the growth of his daughter’s first year of life. Clearly a labor of love, Holloman finds new and interesting ways to depict his growing child’s silhouette. “One thing I hear all the time… ‘They grow up so fast.’ So I decided to start a project where I can mark the stages of her growth by doing a silhouette of her each week for her first year (or as long as I can keep it going).” What a cool idea… we will certainly be checking back often to see what he comes up with.
