World’s Best Father

September 25th, 2012 by in Artsy Sh*t, Images

A charming father-daughter photo set by Washington, D.C. father and photographer Dave Engledow. Parents on Facebook, if you’re going to flood your friends’ feeds with pictures of your kid(s), this is how to do it.

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.

The best photos will be included in a 2013 calendar made possible by a successful Kickstarter run.
