By (author) Harry Borden

Full Description

The image of the single dad is often distorted by out-of-date notions of masculinity – the strong and resilient father, the working father, the emotionally distant dad. In this book, esteemed portrait photographer, Harry Borden, himself a separated father with four children, reveals the vulnerabilities, tenderness and love of 48 single fathers. Each has suffered a loss and struggled to adjust to being the main carer but through their heartache and with the help of their children they have come to a renewed sense of love and purpose. This book contributes to the ongoing debate about what it is to be a man in the modern world.
