About this image

This project is a celebration of Fatherhood. Collaborating with William Mcgranaghan of the charity Dads House, we have so far made portraits of fourteen fathers and their children. The reasons these men became single parent dads are various, but they are all united in their commitment and love for their kids. Because I wanted the images to reference the aesthetic of the family album, my approach is very low-key; just using available light, a film camera and a tripod.
