WATCH - Teen Takes Selfie Every Day for Seven Years

Montreal resident, Hugo Cornellier, is a teen ahead of his own time. He started taking selfies long before it became every teen's activity of choice with a phone.

He took a selfie every day for seven years; from the ages of 12 to 19. That is one picture every day for over 2500 days. He tells News 10 that out of the seven years, he missed fewer than 50 days taking his photos, even managing to do it while on vacation, and at school.

Hugo told WILX "I live in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. but I was born in London, England. Almost all of the pictures at at my home in Pointe-Claire, but a few are at school (JRHS or John Abbott College) and a few are in miscellaneous places (eg: various holidays, friends houses, outside.)

He got started doing it when his father, who was interested in time-lapse photography, purchased a camera for the hobby, and began taking pictures with it. He was inspired by other time-lapse videos he saw, but says "I thought that it would be a cool idea for a kid to do it."

Hugo is still taking his daily selfies, so this video is a work in progress. He plans to update his project every year, with a new video.
