Dave Engledow is a great photographer, and a pretty awesome Dad. After his daughter Alice Bee was born he wanted to document her childhood in the most creative way he could. Dave is not a professional photographer (he works in progressive politics and worker’s rights), but the photos are well shot and thought out. (Photos and video)
What I love about the series is not just the cute posing or the adorable Miss Alice Bee, but the thought behind the photographs by her father. They feature his largest worries about being a father and what that entails. It looks like little Alice Bee is growing up just great. View the video below to hear his take on the series and a short behind the scenes glimpse at one of the shoots.
“The character I portray in this series is intended to be a parody of the father I hope I never become distracted, self-absorbed, neglectful, clueless, or even occasionally overbearing. I’ve always used humor as a way to deal with my personal fears and neuroses, and in many way these images are often an attempt to do just that; to illustrate humorously the fears that I and, as I’ve learned, many other new fathers have about fatherhood.”- Dave Engledow
