Dope Black Dads

LONDON, ENGLAND - FEBRUARY 14: Aaron Jaunty, 38, sits for a portrait with his daughter, Zora, and newborn son, Elias, at their home in Chingford on February 14, 2024 in London, England. Aaron says "Being a Black Dad means love and patience, trial and improvement. Alignment with my wife, my family, my village. Possibility". Dope Black Dads was formed by Marvyn Harrison on Father's Day 2018, first as a WhatsApp group of with 23 Black fathers he knew in London. It has since developed as a digital safe space for some 40,000 fathers from the international community to discuss their experiences of being black, a parent and masculinity in the modern world. It brings together men navigating fatherhood, societal pressures and the age-old stereotype of the absent Black father. Far too often societal biases perpetuate the myth of absent or disengaged lack fathers, the photographer sees this portrait series as an opportunity to uplift the ideology of Black men, especially in their role as fathers. A body of work that celebrates joy, pride and love. These portraits serve as a tribute to Black families' strength, resilience and beauty, amplifying their voices and contributing to a more nuanced and compassionate understanding of Black fatherhood.
