What started as a personal project, quickly became an obsession for New York photographer Jamie Livingston (above), who managed to take a Polaroid picture every day for 18 years.

His first photo was of his then girlfriend Mindy Goldstein and a friend on March 31, 1979.
His last, 6,000 shots later, on October 25, 1997 – his birthday was of Livingston on his deathbed, dying from cancer.
