Henry's dad was removed from these photos by his mom, photographer Rachel Hulin. Her children's photography book Flying Henry is getting a lot of buzz.

I can imagine Henry's father being a little peeved when this project started up! It's very funny. Like a feminist update of the invisible mother photos: http://www.retronaut.co/2011/10/the-invisible-mother/

You're so right, Sara.
I'm sorry, I can't resist a little Bette Midler in honour of Henry's poor father:
Oh, oh, oh, oh
It must have been cold there in my shadow
To never have sunlight on your face
You were content to let me shine, that's your way
You always walked a step behind
So I was the one with all the glory
While you were the one with all the strength
A beautiful face without a name for so long
A beautiful smile to hide the pain
Did you ever know that you're my hero
And everything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle
For you are the wind beneath my wings
It might have appeared to go unnoticed
But I've got it all here in my heart
I want you to know, I know the truth, of course I know it
I would be nothing without you

Thanks for sharing this. It's easily something we can copy. I came here after browsing through all the entries on Spots & Stripes.
