Ashley Markle on rebuilding her relationship with her father through photography

When I was really young – even though my dad decorated my room in floor-to-ceiling Powerpuff Girls décor – I always slept in his bed with him. In the morning, when I’d wake up, he would be gone. Sometimes, he’d just be in the living room watching TV, sometimes not even in the house at all. I’d walk around trying to find him and have to wait until he came home from whatever he was doing. To this day, I make my partner wake me up and say goodbye before he goes to work because I hate waking up not knowing where he is. I think back to those childhood moments.
