Monday 4 March 2019
Back to overview

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 photo exhibition Swedish Dads has been travelling to more than 50 countries all over the world. The exhibition portrays 25 fathers in Sweden and was showing at Epicenter Amsterdam from March 4 – March 9, 2019 as a joint collaboration between the Swedish Institute, the Swedish Embassy in the Hague, Swedish Chamber of Commerce and Epicenter Amsterdam.


The Photo Exhibition Swedish Dads was a part of The Gender Game Changer Theme week which will included daily Lunch talks with interesting speakers, Film night and more.
