World’s best father, by Dave Engledow
Dave Engledow is creating an unconventional scrapbook for his daughter, Alice Bee. When the little girl — now a toddler — grows up she’ll have a complete photographic record of herself in highly precarious situations. But most likely, the images will bring up memories that are sweet, not scary — because Alice stars in “World’s Best Father“, a tongue-in-cheek photo series meant to poke fun at the type of father Engledow does not want to be.
When my daughter Alice Bee was born in 2010, I knew that I wanted to document her life creatively and put together a collection of photos that she would treasure as an adult; however, I truly had no idea that this ongoing photo project would develop quite the way it has. When I first started posting photos of Alice Bee to Facebook, my intent was primarily to entertain my family and friends, and I have been pleasantly surprised by the overwhelmingly positive response that these photos have generated in many countries around the globe.
Dave has created a 2013 calendar with some of his pictures of this project. You can buy it here.
