ECHOLILIA: The spectrum of childhood and the documentation of a relationship; photographs by father and son.
Timothy Archibald, celebrated San Francisco based commercial photographer, struggled to connect with his five-year old firstborn, Eli (the tension in their home was palpable) until Timothy started looking at his son through his camera. Together, the two orchestrated a portrait series that depicts dreamy, intimate images not only of Eli, but of childhood itself, riddled as it is with mystery and fantasy. In doing so, Archibald documents the burgeoning of a newly charted relationship with his son. Through their creative collaboration, empowerment came to both Timothy and Eli. Timothy found a way to dial-in to Eli's different channel, thereby breaching the previously challenging obstacle posed by his son's autistic proclivities. And Eli found a powerful mirror both of his robust, imaginative childhood and his renewed bond with his dad.
In this program, Timothy and Eli will present ECHOLILIA (this series of portraits) at Emory University School of Medicine, where the photographs will be exhibited through November.
