Zun Lee – Father Figure: Exploring Alternative Notions of Black Fatherhood
February 3 – March 31, 2018

OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, February 3rd, 6-9PM

“Through intimate black-and-white photographs, Zun Lee offers an intimate view into the daily lives of Black men with whom Lee has worked closely since 2011–men who are parenting in sometimes difficult social, economic and personal circumstances. Lee brings into focus what father absence stereotypes have distorted: narratives by real fathers who are involved in their children’s lives. These men may not be perfect – few fathers are – but their parental presence firmly rejects familiar media caricatures.”
