Unter dem Namen „Echolilia“ hat Papi und Fotograf Timothy Archibald angefangen seinen autistischen Sohn Elijah zu fotografieren. Dabei geht er auf alltägliche Situationen ein, in denen er seinen Sohn fotografiert. Sicherlich gar nicht so einfach umzusetzen. Aber wirlklich schöne Bilder.
“According to Timothy, his project Echolilia helped him understand the situation, his role as father, but most importantly, to accept his own son’s differences. Those habits that first drove him nuts completely changed through his photos. In Echolilia, father and son create their own visual language, thanks to which they can communicate with each other even when there are no words they both can understand. In fact, Elijah receives positive attention for his rituals, can share something with his dad, and has even started to take his own photos.” Via
