    *Not my Work*

    http://www.dayswithmyfather.com/

    Found this through another site and thought I would repost here to share - personally I found this moving, powerful and hitting a little close to home for me (2 grandparents - now passed on - who suffered for years with Alzheimer's and another now going through it as well).
    And yet even with the moody shots and descriptions there is a sense of both joy and pride carried in this.
    Well worth viewing the whole series of images in the story.

    I'm very blessed that at my age, I still have my parents. I enjoy them both every chance I get.

    THE WORK IS BY PHILP TOLEDANO!!!!!!!!! Why wold you say something so lame as "Not my work"????????!!!!!!! And then give no reference to the artist?

    At any rate. I went into the first couple of images thinking "Ok.. here we go with another tear jerker on Alzheimers" After viewing the images and reading the text I came away with a strong sense of knowing Toledano's father and his relationship with him. To me the work is about relationships and emotion. Thanks for the link.

    Love & Bass

    Thank you for sharing that with us. The images are worth more than words can say. I can't handle death. When my grandfather past I couldn't cope. My father never shed a tear. Maybe he did but never in front of me. I love the empty chair image... His imprint will always remain. Great shots.

    Easy Craig, he did the polite thing and right off say it was not his work, that to me was the important part. We all saw who's it was once we visited the site, it was certainly poignant enough that I wanted to know and it was easy to find. :)

    I have to disagree. Toledano worked hard on these photos. I think his name should have been mentioned from the start.

    It is now mentioned twice (three if you include this quote), let's not make a mountain out of a mole hill. I am sure that if you asked him, he would say that he did not do the pictures just so that his name would be mentioned, he did it out of love... no one was hurt.
