There are more truth in twenty-four hours of a person ́s life than in any philosophy. What do we do with our time, our life? Who do we share our time with? What do we give value to?

All these questions appeared after reading The revolution of everyday life, a book from Raoul Vaneigem. He considers human beings as a cog in the machine of neoliberalism. People are the link in between production and consumption. The organisation of labour and leisure time keeps the social, economic and political order. While we work eight hours a day to get food, accommodation and money to do things in our free time, we will not have strength neither the attitude to generate alternatives or live differently from the establishment.

In that context, thirty people were proposed to take pictures from one day of their life. One picture every hour, during one day, to reflect how they live, what they see and what they do. The project went on for one month, as a metaphor of the time needed for people to get their payslips, and their money in the bank account.

There are more truths in twenty-four hours of a person ́s life than in all the philosophies.
