Days with My Father – Phillip Toledano is a professional photographer whose talent, as I think you will agree, is obvious. When Phillip’s mother passed away, it was just him and his father left, seen as he is an only child. With his father’s physical and mental state slowly deteriorating as a result of old age, Philip turned to the one thing he knew best in order to cope with his harsh reality: photography. The result is a mesmerizing photographic diary of Phillip and his interactions with and anecdotes of his father. This sad story is beautifully told, both visually and textually. I can only hope that when I reach my old age I will have family members that will take care of me and love me as Phillip did his father.
