The Original Unintentional Spanning-Time Photo Blogger

 

same-sweaterDallas, TX – Wednesday, June 3, 2013

Here is an idea for a conceptual art experiment.  Have 40 portraits taken of yourself, one-a-year for 40 years, wear the same outfit, same mustache, taken by different photographers, and make sure every photo gets published.  Seem impossible?

But this isn’t an art experiment, it’s real life.  From 1973 – 2013 now-retired gym teacher Dale Irby wore the same giant lapel shirt and sweater vest.  That’s as long as the Jews walked the desert.

This sweater went from in style, to out of style, to absurd, to retro, to vintage.  Now that this story is going viral, it will probably go from vintage, to Ebay.
