Between 1979-1997, Jamie Livingston, a New York-based photographer, film-maker, circus performer and musician, shot a Polaroid nearly every day until the day that he died. You will cry and laugh and feel grateful to be alive by the time you reach the last photo, as he lies on a hospital bed, dying of cancer on his 41st birthday.
