When my daughter was born in June 2001 my life changed, and like most fathers I wanted to mark the event and create something that would allow her to look back at her formative years and beyond. This is my visual diary. They are not just photographs of her, but the picture that best sums up my week, from a professional portrait to a family snapshot.

In 2004 the diary is still going strong, and with the birth of our son Alistair, I have even more reason to continue, though when I started I had underestimated the time it would take.  Let's hope technology allows us to view these pages in the years ahead!
