The fact of being, is a body of work about the 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.
Above is a picture of my own father, the only picture i have of him.
Thank you so much for considering sharing your story. 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.
