New Limited Edition Photograph from Phillip Toledano
Dad Having a Nap by Phillip Toledano
Aperture is pleased to present a very special new limited edition print Dad Having a Nap from photographer Phillip Toledano’s critically acclaimed and moving project Days With My Father. Published in book form in June 2010, Days With My Father is a series of photographs documenting the Photographer’s father’s struggle with short term memory loss. Touching, but never intrusive, the work addresses the humor, sadness and hope experienced by father and son during a fleeting period. Initially of a personal nature Days With My Father took on new meanings after it was published on the artist’s website in the summer of 2008. The project website became viral, receiving thousands of visitors each day and inspiring an outpouring of emails and comments from people sharing their own stories. An exhibition of the series, Days With My Father is currently on view at 339 Gallery in Philadelphia through November 6th.
Phillip Toledano’s work appeared in Aperture magazine issue 193 which included a feature on his body of work Phone Sex. The photographer’s most recent series of photographs is currently making its solo show debut at the Klompching gallery in New York. This exhibition entitled A New Kind of Beauty will be on view through October, 29th.
