We are very proud of the ‘Celebrating Circle Dads’ Photo Collection created by our very own Fiona Burness. Fiona’s day job is Young Persons’ Worker at Circle. She is also a very talented photographer. Her passion for this led her to create ‘Celebrating Circle Dads’, highlighting the difference a great dad can make. Enjoy the moving photos and read more about the process of creating the collection below. A huge thank you to all of the dads involved and their children.

“When asked to undertake this project to tie in with Circle’s Annual Lecture ‘Talking Dads’ and the Year of the Dad, my first thought was to photograph groups of dads posing for the photo.

The timing coincided with family activity days being run by the various Circle projects over the summer, therefore I decided to capture candid shots of dads and their children.

I wanted to capture the relationship and connection between dads and their children. I hope the images highlight the benefit to the children of having their dads in their lives.

I would like to thank all dads for allowing me to hang about pointing a camera in their direction.”
