The Dad Project is an incredibly beautiful series of photographs that she took while her father was struggling with cancer. This series had a really strong effect on me. I looked at them and immediately started crying. They were sad, beautiful, intimate and intriguing. They told a story that many people are familiar with. It's much like what I am doing with my grandparents in a way. It's a way of keeping someone, while you are losing them physically. Briony has captions that you can read to go along with the photographs on her website. Each one of those captions is very intimate and shows a vulnerable side. It allows viewers to have a deeper connection with her work.
"This is the story of an ending without an ending.This is a work in progress and I hope it always will be.This is my attempt to say goodbye to my Dad with the help of my camera.Being a good daughter to my dying dad was tricky.I struggled to find the balance between dedication to his needs and distraction from my grief.At first the idea of introducing a camera into this already un-resolvable equation seemed unwise,but eventually I think it became the solution. " Briony Campbell
