DAYS WITH MY FATHER

10/02/2009

For a beautiful yet completely heart breaking sequence of pictures look at Phillip Toledano’s DAYS WITH MY FATHER. The movement of portrait to still life to interiors, coupled with intermittent text, creates a dynamic, engaging flow of pictures – all of which were taken in a small, confined space.  With pictures that could easily become repetitive, Toledano has instead wonderfully sequenced them so that they begin to represent the running together of the days leading to his father’s death and trap us within visual echoes, just as his father was trapped within the confines of short term memory loss.

    I saw this a few years back and still look at it from time to time. Absolutely wonderful and heartbreaking at the same time.
