Single Parent Dads

The year that followed my divorce was the most difficult of my life.

Overwhelmed by panic, despair and confusion, the hardest thing for me was the possibility of it having a corrosive effect on my children.

However, through acceptance, forgiveness and love my ex and I found a way to celebrate our time together and truly become friends.

Although involved in my children’s lives, I am not the main carer.  This project aims to celebrate the men who are.

The reasons these men became single parent Dads are various, but they are all united in their commitment and love for their kids.

My intention is to stage an exhibition and ultimately produce a book.

Every participant will get a print and will, I hope, enjoy the process of being photographed.

The approach is very low-key.  Just using available light, a film camera and a tripod.

If you’re a single dad and interested in being photographed, please get in touch.

Thanks to:
