Timothy Archibald photographs his autistic son between ages 5-8 and showcases echolalia.
Archibald’s artwork spans many different topics, but his series “Echolila” seems to be something special. In interviews, Archibald explains how his relationship with his son has changed throughout creating the series.
In an interview with Autism Speaks, Archibald explains his photography, the effects and reactions and also explains more about his son.
What’s the main message you hope people take away when viewing this series?
This is your child. He is born of nature, like everything around us. He may not be “perfect”, but nature isn’t perfect. So let’s accept it, be up front about it, let him be proud of it, and here, let us define it ourselves.
