National Geographic Your Shot

Single Parent | Photograph by Navin Vatsa (@navinvatsa)
“Being a single parent, it is not easy to share the qualities of both father and mother at the same time,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Navin Vatsa. “When I lost my wife my wife in an accident eight years ago, it was very difficult and painful to handle [my son’s] innocence. But gradually with time, the understanding between us [has] become a guiding force to me for the years ahead…”

“Identity is among the most ambiguous subject matters a person can explore. Whether it’s looking at an individual’s relationship with him/herself or examining identity in the context of a larger group or culture, the challenge is to make images that thoughtfully convey something that isn’t necessarily obvious at first glance,” writes Documentary photographer Kholood Eid (@kholoodeid). “We’re asking you, the Your Shot community to explore what makes up your identity, how do you see yourself through a photograph.”
