Practice of the Daily was an examination of how what we do shapes who we are: an everyday documentation of daily behaviors. I took photos every day for a period of roughly 30 days. The series sought to answer the following guiding questions: which comes first? The practice of the daily, or the exercises that create it? In other words, do we see what we do every day and then formulate a series of more codified and official practices around that, or do we regiment ourselves (rules first) and then see what content emerges through the application of those rules?

The photosets were shared on Facebook as a way of building an everyday (i.e. non-art) audience, as well as through the Bureau of Self-Recognition blog. All photos were shot using the camera in an iPhone 3. This was my first investigation into photographic work.
