Photographer Documents Stay-At-Home Dads And Their Kids In Sweden


Johan Bävman is a talented Swedish photojournalist, who worked as a staff photographer at Sydsvenskan, one of the largest newspapers in Sweden. When Johan‘s son Viggo was born three years ago, he decided to take a deeper look at his country’s extremely generous parental leave policies.

“In order to promote a more equal sharing of parental leave between men and women, a so called ‘equality bonus’ has also been introduced. The more days that are shared between parents, the higher the bonus,” Bävman explaines.

For his series “Swedish Dads”, Johan Bävman captured and interviewed 45 fathers he met through Sweden’s open daycares and special parent groups. He is looking for a total of 60 fathers to photograph, to symbolize the 60 days of parental leave they’re allowed in Sweden.

The current system of Sweden allows parents to stay at home with their child during 480 days.
