phillip toledano – days with my father

days with my father

I’m not usually one to get overly sentimental but this series of photos by Phillip Toledano actually almost brought a tear to my eye. Really.

Days With My Father‘ is a collection of photos he took of his 98 year old Dad as an “ongoing record of my father, and of our relationship … for whatever days we have together“. The photos alone tell an amazing story but occasionally, he’s added a couple of paragraphs to accompany the images and it’s those that perhaps strike the biggest chord. Clearly (based on the comments at the end of the project), it’s especially poignant if you’re in a similar situation, but I think for anyone that might feel like they don’t get to make the most of their time with a particular person, this site will bring it home.

Go look.
