“Because I am a Father” is an exhibition of photographs from Egypt and Sweden, which portrays the universal role of fatherhood, and promotes cultural exchange and gender equality.
#EgyptianDads is a photo exhibition that aims to show examples of Egyptian fathers who share the responsibility of taking care of their children and participating in their daily lives. The exhibition, which is held by the National Council for Women, aims to highlight the stories of fathers who share childcare responsibility with their partners, with the aim of nurturing a more gender-equal generation, with stable and happy homes for a more productive society.
#SwedishDads is a photo exhibition based on portraits of fathers who choose to stay home with their children for at least six months. Photographer Johan Bävman examines why these fathers have chosen to stay home with their children, the experiences it 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.
