Tell A Story

SHARE YOUR STORY

The fact of being, is a body of work about the lingering fragments of living with fatherlessness that remain in a life over time.  These emotions and experiences often do not fit neatly within popular expectations for those who grow up with an absent father;  It is not necessarily always a thing you can or need to move on from, but it is an experience that many people must move on with and incorporate into who they are.

Thank you so much for considering sharing your story. For this project having an absent father and living with fatherlessness can be defined broadly; Through this work I am interested in hearing stories from ANYONE who feels they had to come to terms with their own fatherlessness, whatever that means to you.
