Vietnamese photographer Maika Elan created a heartwarming photo series with her father called Like My Father where they went to relive memories of the fun they had at parks.
Maika's narrative for the series goes as:
My father is in treatment for his cancer. For many months, he could not get out of bed because of his poor health.
Then I was reminded of the past when my dad used to take me to the park and buy me a lot of stuffed animal toys. He also took many funny photos of me. I think it’s my turn to do something for my father, as he has done for me in the past. We both went back to the same park and played like old days. He had to try very hard to cope even just for a few hours.
I hope these pictures I make will be a big motivation for him. I hope they let him see that he is not as sick as he feels. In my heart, he is always a happy person and full of optimism.
Our little adventure began, like old days.
