    Swedish Dads Photo: Johan Bävman

Swedish Dads – a photo exhibition about gender-aware modern men

#Swedish Dads is a photo exhibition based on portraits of a select group of fathers who choose to stay home with their babies for at least six months. Photographer Johan Bävman examines why these fathers have chosen to stay home with their children, what the experience has given them, and how their relationship with both their partners and their children has changed as a result. The exhibition aims to show the effects of gender equality in parenting on both individuals and society.

The exhibition is produced by the Swedish Institute (SI) in cooperation with the Embassy of Sweden in Canberra and presented in Australia in cooperation with Parents at Work and supporting corporate partners.

The exhibition is showing in the foyers of Towers 1, 2 and 3 at International Towers Sydney, Barangaroo, on weekdays from 5 to 25 September 2017.
