days with my father

More of a somber than uplifting post today....but I felt so compelled to share this website with you.

Philip Toledano is a photographer. By trade. He recently released a photo essay titled Days With My Father. This touching compilation of photos was taken after the death of Toledano's mother. The images give an intimate look at the father-son relationship and serve as a time capsule of the period. Although very simple and sparse, the series captures a spectrum of emotion.

The elegant design and functionality of the site compliments the work by allowing the photos to stand on their own and speak for themselves. I found it to be inspiring and at times heart-wrenching. Grab a tissue, visit Days With My Father and then go call your family.
