As of January 10, 2023, the Everyday project includes a collection of 8402 photographs. The project will reach its 10,000th day on May 27, 2027. The collection will continue until the end of Noah’s life, which is currently unknown.
Noah started with a Sony DCR-PC100. That camera was used from January 10, 2000, to September 30, 2004. The second camera that was used in this project was the Kyocera Finecam SL300R. That camera was used from October 1, 2004, to September 9, 2008. The third camera Noah has used is the Nikon Coolpix S10. That camera has been used from October 1, 2008, to the present day.
On occasion, Noah uses a different camera like the iPhone or a Canon 10D. Browse the tags to see these different photos.
Yes. Over the past 23 years, Noah has missed 30 days. Sixteen days were lost in 2003 due to a harddrive failure. One day was missed when Noah crossed the international dateline on a ship traveling west to east on September 9, 2001.
Noah has minted these 47 lost and missing days and taken them out of the online gallery. Those days are viewable here.
The only rule has been to make a photo during a 24 hour cycle of a new day. The photos have been made at all times of the day. In the early years of the project, the photos were generally made at night. In more recent years the photos have mostly been made in the afternoon.
Noah uses flip-screen cameras that allow him to see himself when he is taking the photo. Noah places his nose in the middle of the frame. Every photo is taken in a slightly different way than the day before it.
Future photos will be uploaded into the gallery once a month.
Yes, probably. You can see the videos on Noah’s channel.
NFTs are digital assets, such as a piece of art or a collectible, stored online using a blockchain. For Everyday, each day is represented by its own NFT. This allows us to create a permanent and verifiable record of each day.
Noah had always intended for Everyday to be a stills photography project utilizing digital technology. The aim of this website coupled with NFT technology is to allow for there to be a permanent record of the work available online, hopefully forever.
The collection is powered by a custom ERC721 contract. The token IDs correlate to the project day, with the first photo taken being ID #1 and continuing sequentially. Tokens are created as they are minted within the contract.
Each day in the Everyday project can be minted only once as an NFT. To mint a day, you will need to connect your wallet to the everyday.photo website and navigate to one you wish to mint.
If the day has not yet been minted, you will see a button offering a mint function. Follow the instructions provided by your wallet to complete the minting process. If the day has already been minted as an NFT, you can search for it on Opensea to see if it is currently available for purchase.
We will release new photos for minting yearly. 2023 will be available in early 2024.
