Meaningful Annual Picture Taken with Daddy



A long time ago in New York City, Steven Addis stood on a corner holding his 1-year-old daughter in his arms; his wife snapped a photo. The picture has inspired an annual father-daughter ritual, where Addis and his daughter pose for the same picture on the same corner, each year. Addis shares the 15 treasured photographs from the series, and explores why this small, repeated ritual means so much to the father-daughter bond all over the world.   

Steven Addis is a father, a film and photography buff, who by day harnesses the power of branding for social change. He is an avid traveler and an adviser on businesses and non-profit organisations through board work for the UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive. 

The first picture clearly shows Steven Addis as a doting father beaming with pride holding his precious 1-year-old daughter. As his cherubic and lovely daughter grows steadily for the next 15 years, Addis maintains his suave and handsome look, a rare feat among Westerners. By the time the girl is 15-year-old, you can see Steven Addis finding it tough holding her upright to prevent her from falling. She is a big girl now; age sure matters.
