A FATHER’S TALE / Borut Peterlin
“When I was ten years old, I was playing with fire and I accidentally spilled gasoline on myself. My burns were severe, and I barely survived. It was extremely difficult, but when I became a father, I came to see that it must have been much harder on my parents than on myself. The fear of losing a child is so much greater then the fear of personal perish.
However, losing a child is not just a physical thing. Separating from my wife after 21 years together reawakened the fear, and an avalanche of emotions buried me. These images are talking about loss and distance. These images are talking about bonds. These images are talking about photography as a bridge. These images are creating the past. These images speak of the fears and delights of being a father.”
