Project 1976: Making a Photo History of the Year You Were Born

feature-1976

Sveinn Birkir has been collecting images from 1976 to make a visual anthology of the year he was born.

Freaking rad!

Wanna make your own Project 1976? Search Flickr or Google Image Search for your birth year and see what comes up.

Look for events that happened and things that came out that year (cars, products, albums, movies). Who was on the cover of Time or Rolling Stone? Who died or was born that year?

Sprinkle in some family photos and show off your time capsule! Start a photoblog, or print the photos and stick ’em on the wall.

Better yet, do this for a pal (or your kid, if you’ve got one of those) and make it into a book for their birthday. Better even than cupcakes, amigo.
