Man ages 12 years in eight minutes

A New York photographer has taken a self portrait every day for the last twelve-and-a-half years.

Noah Kalina, from Brooklyn, has compiled them all together for a rapid time-lapse video on YouTube, reports the New York Daily News.

And the result, whichc shows him changing from a fresh-faced teen to a bearded 30-something, has notched up an amazing 3.5 million hits.

The montage features an incredible 4,515 photos - starting from when Mr Kalina got his first digital camera at the age of 19.

"I really just thought it would be a good idea," he said. "That, along with my interest in time and the subtleties of the aging process were the reasons for starting the project."

This is the second time he has released a video of his Everyday project. The first version was posted after six years in 2006 and attracted nearly 24 million views.
