Timothy Archibald is a talented photographer. He is also the father of a child living with autism. When his son Elijah was 5 years old, he began a new photography project that centred around his unique behaviour. With the initial intentions of showing the candid moments of Elijah’s world to behavioural specialists, Archibald started a project that grew into so much more.
The photography sessions became not only a father-son bonding experience, but also a visual language between the pair. Without saying a single word, the portraits below are honest, eye-opening and heartfelt.
