Terry Corrao’s Father Daughter is a haunting and joyous exploration of the bond between men and their female children, shot over two decades all around the world. Turning her searching eye on fathers and daughters from every walk of life, Corrao catalogs this unbreakable bond in all its beautiful complexity.
From raucous games in the front yard, to the bittersweet beauty of giving away your daughter on her wedding day, Father Daughter weaves passing moments into a tribute to shared lives. We see fathers and their girls working, wrangling lions on film sets, flying hot air balloons, and sharing the simple pleasures of play.
Inspired by the passing of her own father, Corrao set out to document the impossibly rich bonds of family in sophisticated black and white. These intimate portraits use natural light and casual settings to illuminate fleeting moments with a timeless authenticity. Her camera discovers in their eyes, faces, and bodies a connection that bridges lifetimes. The stories captured here by Terry Corrao are a celebration of the smiles, glances, and joy than only father and daughter can share.
