Photographer Johan Bavman, with his son Viggo at 9 months. Bavman also photographed other new fathers who have made the most out of Sweden's extraordinary parental leave policy.
Magnus Bjerhag, 37, rests with his new child. "I believe it's easier to be home with a child in this kind of neighborhood that we live in. Almost all the fathers are home with their children," he told Bavman. "Apart from that, I work in an industry and in a company that is quite young and supportive, with a lot of female managers."
Ola Larsson, 41, works around the house with his son Gustav.
Loui Kuhlau, 28, enjoys a drink with his son Elling.
Alfred Nerhagen, 38, balances Mira, 1, and Zack, 4.
Goran Sevelin, 27, holds his daughter Liv.
Samad Kohigoltapeh, 32, spends quality time with his newborn twins Parisa and Leia.
Martin Gagner, 35, holds Valdemar, 1, as he paints the nails of 4-year-old Matilda.
Anton Cervin, 40, puts a helmet on Marit, 4, while 1-year-old Pia watches. "I think more about gender equality now that I have two little girls," he told Bavman.
John Wallin, 30, looks after Ines, 1, and Johannes, 3.
Fredric Janson, 34, and his partner split their parental leave 50/50 after they had their son Ossian. "Since we took turns being on leave and working from the outset of our parenthood, parental leave never felt boring or unstimulating," he told Bavman. They spent the first four months at home together and then split up the rest of the leave, alternating time at home.
