Photographer Timothy Archibald’s son Eli was born autistic. Timothy began photographing his child, and it appears that Archibald is not only a top class image-maker, but also one fantastic father with a brilliant approach raising his son.
Image after image, Archibald’s collection reveals the socially withdrawn child’s unique perspective. The way he interacts with objects offers an alternative approach to communicating with the world around him. The photographer says, “I never wanted [Eli] to think that he was normal. I wanted him to be aware of how different he was and see that as an asset.” – via
