About

everyday by Jay Desind
everyday by Jay Desind

everyday is the culmination of a photographic and artistic odyssey that began when I bought a one way ticket to Singapore. My intent was to travel for about two months and then return home. 

I never made it back home. 

Over three years later I’ve traveled to over 30 countries and taken over 160,000 photographs. Two books of photography and poetry and an ever expanding audience on social media led me to the idea of producing a quality hard cover book.

This book is over 750 pages of photography and inspirational stories or poetry. Every photo shared in the book was taken and then processed on the iPhone.

The photos have not been taken randomly, but according to a specific moment where I felt connected to what surrounded me. This could have been a stray glance from someone or an emotional instance of life mixed in with my surroundings. These photos were taken on the specific day shown, and they represent a mixture of countries and situations.

This is not just a photo book. It’s me and how I see the world. It's my way of giving a voice to silent people, my connection to the cities I visited, my thankfulness for being on earth and witnessing all sides of life, either good or bad.

It's the most ambitious iPhone photography book ever attempted. It uses the wonderful abilities that creators of small Apps have given us to work with images in creative new ways.

I want to share these moments with you in a huge worldwide hug. It’s a massive message of hope, fun, desperation, sadness and joy; it’s about life.

everyday is  accessible, thoughtful, moving, and fun. It’s real life seen through the lens of an artist and using only the iPhone to create photography that goes beyond the bounds of normal picture taking.

Risks and challenges

everyday is done! Except for a final spit and polish, all the hard work has been completed. Once we decide on a final book printer, we will send it off to get it printed.

The rewards are great! Stuff for you and one very happy guy on this end who is eager to see this project out in the world.

If it doesn't get funded, it won't print.

    A Jay Event!

    I will personally fly anywhere in the world (Please not Antartica unless you have mittens for me) and give a talk at the location of your choosing for friends, family or the President of your country and share a multimedia presentation that talks about my incredible never-ending travel odyssey. I'll also spend a half day with you and one other roaming the streets of your city and showing you how to take better smartphone photos. For this reward I will be responsible for my own airfare and accommodations and food. Duration of the trip is up to me, but you have me for an evening and day at the least. I will also bring signed copies of my book and offer them for a less cost during the event (Sort of like my own Barnes & Noble offer)
