366 Days of Me is a self-portraiture project started by Steve Berra (@steveberra), professional skateboarder and co-founder of Los Angeles indoor skatepark The Berrics.
Steve’s project may have started as a means to win a bet with his best friend but it resulted in a visual momento of his life, “I knew when I was 60 or 80 or 100, I’d appreciate the time I took to do it because no matter how old I feel now, I know I’m going to look back and remember the days when I was young.”
Steve will be uploading the 366th photo today, marking the completion of his project. Be sure to stop by his Instagram feed to congratulate him on uploading a photo a day for just over a year (the extra day is due to the 2012 Leap Year) and check out the rest of his portraits!
