Father-Son

Judy Gelles. Father-Son, 1981.

Description:
This image is part of a series titled "Diary of a Desperate Housewife: 1977-1982" I set up the camera on a tripod and documented my life as a mother of two young children from 1977-1982. I kept a journal during this period, and added the handwritten text from my journal writing to the photographs.
In this photo, my son is looking up to his father who is also his soccer coach.
