Full Description
When Justin O'Neill and his wife separated after thirteen years of marriage, he was unsure how he would ever recover. From the vantage point of professional photographer and photo editor, and with camera in hand, he decided to channel his feelings into imagery, and turned his lens to the most important subject in his life - his daughter Stella. With just one click of the shutter release, he had sparked the creative collaboration between a father and daughter trying to navigate their new normal. On Stellar Rays is the personal exploration and interaction of Justin and Stella as they forged a path to a newly dynamic relationship. Through fifty stunning black-and-white photographs, this narrative is a visual representation of the many stages a parent and a child encounter when faced with divorce and their journey through it together - from mourning and loss to prospect and new beginnings. The profound emotional impact of these extraordinary photographs makes On Stellar Rays indispensable for those examining the effects of a family in crisis, including potential positive outcomes of a painful situation.
