Artist and musician Jamie Livingston began taking a Polaroid picture every day, from March 31st, 1979 through October 5th, 1997 -his 41st birthday, and the day he died. The resulting 6,697 pictures are an art collection, exhibited by his friends Hugh Crawford and Betsy Reid. Chris Higgins at mental_floss has posted select photos that follow the story of Livingston’s life and decline as he battled cancer, plus the story of what happened to the photo collection afterward. Warning: have your hankie ready. Link
