Father Photographs Autistic Son

As stated in the title, these are a collection of photographs Timothy Archibald took. These photos are of his autistic son who was 6 at the time. The photographer wanted to capture the interesting behavior of his son. He recently published these photos in a book titled  ‘Echolilia/Sometimes I Wonder‘. I felt this collection of photos is brilliant and gives the viewer an insight to autism and how it personally affects his son.

‘They see the focus and the haze, the concentration and the dreamy, and seem to relate to the emotional struggle for the parent in the photos as well.’

He says his main aim of the series is to make people more accepting of the ‘imperfections’ in life.”
