Phillip Toledano: Days With My Father
© Phillip Toledano
In his very personal project, Days with my Father, Phillip Toledano has taken photography, memoir, and diary and combined them into a beautifully sincere visual journey. Days with my Father is a moving representation of Toledano’s life with his father after his mother died. Toledano’s mother had shielded her son from the full extent of his father’s dementia, which had eradicated his short-term memory. The images are vivid, the light is radiant and the writing is honest, simple and thoughtful, in ways both light-hearted and heartbreaking.
