Over the course of a single day what do you do? Where do you go? What do you eat? Who do you talk to? What time do you get up and what time do you fall asleep? The beauty of this project is in capturing the mundane everyday details. These are the things we often don’t pay much attention to. Day In The Life™ is an opportunity to shed light on your routines – the magical part coming after you’ve done it a few times are actually able to literally see your life through your words and photos.
Before this workshop you will need to actually document a day in your life. Pick one day and take photos from when you wake up until you fall into bed. Along the way keep notes of times and what’s actually happening. In class we will bring these words and photos into a 4×4 album. For more details on this concept please check out my archive of Day In The Life™ posts here: https://aliedwards.com/projects/day-in-the-life
