Not everyone in the world is born perfect, everyone is different from each other. This child Elijah who’s 5 years old, has a condition of autism. His father Timothy Archibald, a photographer from San Francisco had noticed that his son is a bit different from other kinds. As a dad, everyone wants to raise their child with the best. He had photographed his son’s behaviors for a project called Echolilia, and through that, they’ve grown closer and it had allowed the dad to know his son better.

Through his images, it is seen how unique this child’s behaviors are and how he communicates with the world by interacting with objects.
