to installing images from ’s project “Father Figure” as part of festival. This project explores alternate notions of black fatherhood, and offers an intimate view into the daily lives of black men whom I have worked closely with since 2011. They are parents existing under a variety of circumstances – as married and single fathers, social fathers, young and old, middle and lower class. I aim to examine the stereotypes of fatherhood, specifically father absence by focusing on men who are actively involved in their children’s lives. By showing everyday family scenes, the photographs call into question such stereotypes while exploring broader connections between fatherhood and blackness. The caption of the top left image: , NY, .
