Photos and narrative by Rebecca Rabb –
It is no secret that the role of a father is incredibly important. When I started taking photographs of fathers and their children, this project quickly grew. As this project continues to grow, I look forward to sharing the positive images of fatherhood and show a representation of what more closely reflects these relationships. This project is also my way of honoring, celebrating and thanking the men of our community.
“Above all, children need our unconditional love, whether they succeed or make mistakes; when life is easy and when life is tough.” -President Obama
“I felt something impossible for me to explain in words. Then when they took her away, it hit me. I got scared all over again and began to feel giddy. Then it came to me — I was a father.” – Nat King Cole
“Blessed indeed is the man who hears many gentle voices call him father!” -Lydia M. Child
“It is much easier to become a father than to be one.” -Kent Nerburn, Letters to My Son: Reflections on Becoming a Man
