Happy Mothers Day!
My mom would kill me if I ever put a photo of her on the internet, so here is one of my dad instead. He loves it when I take his picture.

My parents came and watched some football with me. My dad had me watching football with him before I can remember and I was really glad he got to see the Dolphins fan club I created in NYC. My parents know about all the naked chicks and parties and all that bullshit in my life so I am glad they could see one of the positive things I do. Our fan club has already raised over $1000 for charity and we have created a home for Dolphins fans who for years were watching the games by themselves in the middle of Jets country. It’s good to have a home.
After the death of his mother, Phillip Toledano formed an even closer bond with his father.
Philip’s beautiful and poetic pictures can all be seen in Days with My Father.
I once did a photo related event for a company called LVHRD with Phillip. Of all the 5 photographers involved he was by far and away the best. He has shot a few of my friends for a series he did on phone sex workers. But of all his work Days With My Father is my favorite of his projects. I photograph my own father every time I see him. He is probably one of my favorite subjects. I just hope I don’t have to take any pictures as heartbreaking as any of these any time soon.
