Ever since photographer Noah Kalina began his Everyday portrait project 11 years ago (I had no idea he was still actively photographing himself, talk about commitment) there have been hundreds of inspired photogs snapping daily self-portraits. Flickr user clickflashwhir is one of these people, taking hundreds of portraits over the past several years. Tiemen Rapati downloaded 500 of her photos and created this beautiful composite image by finding an average RGB value for each pixel and dividing it by the total number of portraits. I have no idea how this is done, but I bet it involves computers. It’s amazing how surgically accurate she must sit, I assume using her eyes to align each shot. Really stunning. Just a note, though it says Tiemen used 400 photos on Flickr, he averaged in another 100 for this post. (via feltron)
