Dave Engledow's Confessions of the World's Best Father is one ordinary dad's attempt to capture his dysfunctional parenting in a few highly telling photos. When Dave Engledow took a photo of himself holding his eight-week-old daughter Alice Bee like a football whilst squirting breast milk into a 'World's Best Father' mug of coffee, he didn't expect the reaction that followed.
Instead of complaints, abuse and a call from social services, he found that his innocent attempt to capture the sleep-deprived idiocy of the first-time Dad had the world chortling and clamouring for more.
Unfortunately for Alice Bee, her father obliged - repeatedly.
Dave's outrageous selfies featuring Alice Bee make the perfect companion for dads of all abilities - whether those still dreading that first nappy change, or old hands who could tell a few tales. About Dave Engledow: Although Dave has a degree in photojournalism, he has taken more photographs in the three years since the birth of his daughter than in the previous decade.
With a new-found passion for digital photography, Dave's inspiration has stemmed from creatively documenting Alice Bee's early life in a truly unique way. Dave and his family currently live in the US.
