Fathers at a One Direction Concert

Photographer Angelina Castillo, taking photographs for the Nashville Scene, shot images of fathers who accompanied their daughters to a concert by boy band One Direction late last month.

The expressions that Castillo captured tell the angsty truth. The gut wrenching, existential pain that only the boy band du jour— onstage, armed with microphones and soundmixed with thousands of screaming tweens — can cause. The fathers' souls are bared; this is the extreme discomfort and musical revulsion that only the love a father feels for his daughter can balance. Someone give these men medals of honor!
