“I did not see much of my father growing up. He was part of the local triads and that was how he made his living. I saw him almost as a mystical character when I was young and admired him for being tough and feared. Now I have grown up, and he has grown old. Somewhere along the line, I became a photographer. Making pictures of my father is the only way I have to bridge the distance between us.” – Sean Lee
Dad with Volcanic Ash (2010). Photograph by Geordie Wood.
“I made this photograph of my father’s hands in Iceland while the volcano Eyjafjallajökull was actively erupting above us. My dad has a deep and abiding connection to the natural world; it’s really a spiritual relationship, and about much more then just walks in the woods. I admire him for that and have tried to pass on that sentiment to my own son. The connection of ash to cycles in nature and family seems a fittingly poetic portrayal of my father.” – Geordie Wood

“I’ve always appreciated the way my parents were able to balance each other out—my mother being the wild one, and my father more quiet and collected, yet always up for anything, I suppose that’s what I was going for with this image.” – Ryan Lowry
