From 12 to 20: Time-Lapse of Daily Selfies Shows Boy Turn Into a Man

20-year-old Hugo Cornellier of Canada has been taking one selfie a day before the word “selfie” became a thing. He started his daily ritual 8 years ago, when he was just 12 years old. This past weekend, Cornellier published the 2-minute above that shows himself growing up from age 12 to age 20.

The video has been viewed over 1.1 million times in the first few days. It seems that Cornellier has discovered a winning formula — he released a 7-year version of this project last year, and that video has gotten viewed over 5.7 million times.

“I still take the selfies everyday and will continue to do so forever,” Cornellier says, and notes that he’s now working on creating a new version of the video that aligns his face in each frame. He’s currently doing the aligning and sizing by hand — a process he calls “most time-consuming” — but perhaps he’ll soon turn to using a face detection algorithm to make things easier for himself.
