Designer Photoshops His Daughter Into "Marginally Dangerous" Situations

  • Posted 13 months Ago

A 32-year-old designer from Dublin, Ireland, has messed with his family and friends, Photoshopping his 18-month-old daughter, Hannah, into "marginally dangerous situations" which are just about believable enough to make people think "wait, did he...?"

"I thought it would be fun to worry family by putting someone delicate in precarious situations," he says. "Most of the reactions have been positive, with the odd person not getting the joke and commenting I "should be shot".

The series came about when Hannah came out of hospital after receiving a bone transplant at the age of 10 months. "She had a very rare immune disorder called HLH and spent 6 months of her first year in hospital, receiving chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant, which is the only possible cure," says Stephen. "Of 27 million worldwide donors, 3 were deemed suitable, and an anonymous german lady donated. Because we missed out on so much normal stuff of the first year, we take tons of photos now that we're able to do normal things out of isolation."

So, as well as having a funny side, Stephen hopes the series will help raise awareness for becoming a bone marrow donor. If you're interested in finding out more and helping people like Hannah, head here for the US, here for the UK, or here for Ireland.
