Kristen Schmid's 父子情节摄影作品集，Kristen Schmid's是一位摄影师，他创作了一组父与子的摄影作品，从孩子会走路到拥有自己的思想，父亲和孩子之间的对话。
My husband and I always talk about how nothing can prepare you for parenthood: The highs and lows, the moments of total frustration and total happiness, the excitement you feel when you experience your child's "firsts." We've only been parents for about 19 months and yet we're still surprised by how much we've learned, how much our baby boy teaches us.
This beautiful series by documentary fine art photographer Kristen Schmid, takes you inside the life of a parent. Called "Father to Son," the photos capture everyday moments happening between her husband Ted and their oldest son Sam. Watch as Sam grows from a tender 3-weeks-old to a mature age 7, and see how his father plays a vital role in his development.
"I am interested in what it feels like to be the parent, and in what it feels like to be the child," Schmid states. "I am trying to distill what I know is important about how they interact with each other, and how that changes over time.
"Just as my husband learns about being a father through the act of parenting, I learn about this relationship through the act of taking pictures. Frequently I am surprised by what I notice with a camera that I wouldn’t have seen otherwise. The pictures are a testament to what I think is true, and also a method of discovery. Experience and time deepen my understanding. But people and their relationships are ever-changing, creating more layers to explore.
"Parenting is a mix of simultaneous and intense opposites: love and frustration, joy and duty, play and discipline, closeness and separation. Togetherness and opposition can happen at the same time.
"My husband and son have their own unique thoughts and emotions. They may have different experiences of the same situation. They are not always aware of each other's perspective, or how their actions affect each other. Sometimes they don’t see how similar they are....What I want to bring to the conversation is an examination of how the father-son relationship takes shape. Everyday parent-child interactions are more meaningful and influential than even the participants realize."
