Before parents know it, their little baby will be asking for gas money to get them to college; to fully appreciate the fast growth of his first child, one dad created the Silhouette Project. Once a week for the first year of his daughter's life, graphic designer Brent Holloman has taken it upon himself to document her ever-changing profile in unique ways.

For instance, one week into the Silhouette Project, Vie's head is depicted as abstract facets, as though Holloman was reluctant to project his own ideas of her onto her person. Another entry in the Silhouette Project involves her head forming a lone island while another involves a sunny side up egg. Holloman reveals that he was inspired by Matt Stevens' Max100 project, which interpreted the greatest sneaker of all time 100 different ways.
