Pères (Fathers) is born as a reflection on fatherhood to promote gender equality and social
development in Africa.
We live in a world permeated by stereotypes, of which we are often victims. Pères is a participatory
project that questions these cliches that we carry as a burden, in a literal way and also symbolic,
to create a pathway towards an open dialogue on a crucial and extremely significant matter.
Pères aims to inspire social change through a series of photographs of dads with their babies and
strives to support women on their battle for gender equality. A symbolic act that means an invitation
to reflect on gender roles. These portraits make visible the role of the father in the family as well as
they promote a more equal and balanced family model, where the fathers are engaged in the education
and care of their children at the same level as the mothers.
