In his first book, photographer Byron Wolfe, recipient of the esteemed Santa Fe Prize for Photography, celebrates the beauty of daily life by making one original, compelling picture every day for a year. The resulting images create an intimate document of the everyday—domestic scenes, nature, children, and meditative still lifes—universal in their simplicity and appeal. 365 photos capture the minutiae of life as it is actually experienced to create a narrative attuned to detail, place, and the passage of time. Everyday demonstrates how serious creative work can stem from the most ordinary settings, and how surprisingly often mundane detail and unexpected beauty turn out to be one in the same.
