BOSTON (PIX11) — A Boston artist has raised the bar for selfie-taking extremely high.

Karl Baden, now 61, has taken selfies almost everyday since the 80s and complied 24 years and eight months of photos into a two-minute time-lapse video.

Baden started the “Every Day” project on February 23, 1987 and has taken a self portrait daily ever since.

The photography teacher at Boston College says he has missed only one day.

The video shows from 1987 to 2011.

Baden says he began the project to show how aging changes appearance.

“I’ll stop when I’m dead. If I’m dead, I won’t know what will happen with [my project] from there, but the plan is to have an institution acquire it in some form,” he told Boston Magazine.
