I actually started this project by accident. One day I placed an order for Fujifilm Instax, but typed in the wrong amount, and received an enormous box of film. I couldn't arrange a return, so I came up with the 365 Days concept.
The photos were taken between 18th August 2010 and 17th August 2011. I felt as though this year made me different. I was studying in the UK; life was sometimes boring, sometimes busy, sometimes tough and sometimes fun, but the main challenge was to make everything ok. Recording a year wasn't easy; this kind of project allows you to view yourself and the things you do; I found I wasted too much time and procrastinated. I was studying in a small town, without too much contact time. I fell into a regular routine; back and forward between Tesco, the High Street, and the photographic lab. A very simple and quiet existence, there was no alcohol or parties, and not that much of a social life. Despite this, the year project was not a negative; showing the small moments between the big ones, I created a document which showed a year of growth and memory, rather than just a quick highlight reel. Looking back, it was really was a good year.
