The photo exhibition portrays fathers who belong to the relatively small percentage of fathers in Sweden who choose to stay at home with their children for at least six months. Swedish photographer Johan Bävman examines why these fathers have chosen to stay at home with their children and how their relationships with their partners and their children have changed as a result. The exhibition aims to show the effects of gender equality on parenting, both for an individual and for society.

The U.S. tour of Swedish Dads is supported by Embassy of Sweden.
