I had the great pleasure of working with photographer Timothy Archibald here at TW many years ago, before he went off to become a bigshot Photographer of the Year for the Phoenix New Times. He's now in the Bay Area, working in commercial photography.

He's also working on a haunting series with his son, Eli, that he calls "Echolilia." He talks about the series with photography blog 100 Eyes.

Q: Timothy, you describe “Echolilia” as a collaboration with your son, Elijah. Can you tell me more about that?

A: Around the time Elijah turn 5 we started making photographs together. I’d kind of initiate it with some direction, he’d do something that seemed unexpected…something I’d never have been able to think of…we’d look at the images together on the digital camera and try to refine them…try to improve them, try to take them in other directions. The idea of turning the creative control over to a child, while I operated the camera, allowed me to make images that seemed to have this sense of discovery to me. There was also alot going on at the time with Elijah…behavior things that we couldn’t make sense of.


Check out Tim's Web site here. Don't miss the Nerd Convention.

More photos from "Echolilia" after the jump.
