Once in a while, you come across a photographer, whose work touches you. It is definitively the case of Phil Toledano‘s photograph. The body of work of this photographer tells stories of all kind from documenting the phone sex industry to investigating the spectacle of the American Dream.

A recent, more personal series, quietly documents his farewell to his father, a man unwilling to accept his wife’s death in the last years of his life. The resulting collection of images is deeply poignant and authentic. Check it out at “Days With My Father.”
