Art Is Experience

‘I’ve been taking a photo every day at 12.34pm for 10 years’

When Samuel Ryde obtained his first smartphone in 2012, he began a challenge to photograph whichever he was up to at 12.34pm each working day.

Initially he planned to total the venture in excess of one calendar year, but afterwards determined to continue to keep on snapping.

More than 10 years afterwards, the 40-yr-old artist and hairdresser from Tower Hamlets, east London, states he has documented each the “interesting and mundane” character of daily London daily life.

Even with from time to time “existence getting in the way”, Mr Ryde says he rarely misses the moment and needs to carry on the task for the relaxation of his lifetime.
