Fathers and Daughters
In Their Own WordsBook - 1994
By turns adoring, alienating, challenging, and cherished, the bond between a father and daughter is always a compex and compelling one, and acclaimed photographer Mariana Cook explores this eternal relationship as never before. In the best-selling tradition of Gifts of Age, Fathers and Daughters offers a remarkable collection of photographic portraits of 60 fathers and their daughters, both famous and obscure. Cook's exquisite images are accompanied by deeply moving texts writen by her subjects themselves--sometimes plain-spoken, sometimes poetic, but always directly from the heart. With an introduction by William Styron and an afterword by the photographer, Fathers and Daughters is much more than a glimpse into the lives of a few individuals; it is a loving tribute and an inspiratonal documentary--as well as the quintessential Father's Day gift--for fathers and daughters everywhere.
