Art can be a powerful tool for getting to know ourselves and others and exploring important things in our lives. In this video by Sanctum Films, you’ll hear how photographer Stephan Barrett uses photography to explore the concept of fatherhood, as well as other big concepts such as relationships and change.
When he was three years old, Max Pritchard was diagnosed with high-functioning autism. His mom Danielle knew how important an early intervention would be to help Max in overcoming troubles with speech, anxiety and social skills. One of the big factors in his treatment is photography. With a camera in his hands, little Max is successfully overcoming these challenges on a daily basis.
Dads love their daughters and there’s nothing they wouldn’t do for them. And Josh Rossi, dad and photographer, combined the love for his daughter with the passion for photography. He made his three-year-old daughter’s dream come true with his photographic skills, lots of Photoshop and even more love. He turned his daughter Nellee into Belle from Beauty and the Beast. Maybe you remember him from a few months ago, when he turned his daughter into Wonder Woman.
Josh traveled all over Europe to take the perfect shots. Later on, he did a photo shoot with Nellee and brought all the images together. It took a lot of time, work and patience, but it gave truly fantastic results.

But becoming a dad made him reexamine his priorities and change his view of the world.
