Tom Teodosijev

Tom a photographer has used still life photography and the contents of storage drawers to try and record something of his father. He says "Can you capture the soul of a beloved one"

In MY FATHER’S MEMORIES cycle, the author has attempted to capture the very essence of his father’s existence, of his moods and states of mind. He wanted to use the means of photographic expression freely and therefore he decided NOT to deploy the usual portrait or documentary photographs. And only then was he able to express without any limitations how he sees his father.
