What do the critics say?
It’s free of any sense of frustration and reverberates with love, acceptance and humor.
-Anastasia Cazabon / Fototazo
Echolilia is one of the most intriguing and revealing photography books on children. It goes beyond the lyrical and the physical to examine how his son Elijah, and children as a whole, think, see and behave.
As an artist, Archibald easily slips into that half-world of alternate reality --the space between the echos-- appreciating and documenting. I've always felt autism's gift was the redefinition of language, and I've never seen if so beautifully expressed than here.
There is a very faint sentimentality in the photographs and a sense of eccentricty that result in an unusual beauty; you can tell that these are dear subjects to him, without feeling as if he is imposing his affection on the audience. The emphasis of form and shape and the anthropmorphic quality of the young boy's gestures and activities make for some of the most interesting photographs I have seen in a very long while.
