THE FATHERS PROJECT

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.
