Sobre o projeto "Pais com Amor"
The "Loving Parents" project aimsto draw attention to the importance of the role of the fathers in the lives of children, by promoting the active and lasting role of fatherhood in the growing up and development of children.It also emphasizes the importance of shared parental leave and its benefits for parents, mothers, children and society as a whole.
The question "What is it to be a father?" is the theme for the project developed by the Swedish photographer Johan Bävman, which resulted in the " Swedish Dads" exhibition ( http://www.johanbavman.se/swedish-dads/ ).
After Brasília, Mozambique and Rwanda, the Swedish Embassy is putting the same question to Portuguese parents in Lisbon, and invites all parents of children under the age of 12 to send up to 3 photographs of their family, in a domestic context, which illustrates the love and the affective ties that exists between father and children.
