What does being a father mean to you?

November 16th, 2015 – Brooklyn, NY, US:

McCants, a renowned New York Photographer unveils his first major solo photo exhibition showcasing his work from the past 7 years in New York, entitled “The Proud Poppas Photo Project.”

Mr. McCants, a visual artist, and the photographer is known for his brilliant work in portraiture and photojournalism has worked independently as a fathering specialist and fatherhood advocate through a community-based group he founded called Proud Poppas United. “I was inspired to do this project by my encounters with some amazing fathers, all from different backgrounds and experiences,” says McCants. “Each encounter became a photo series along with inspiring fatherhood stories and testimonies of their own personal dedication to being an active father in their
children’s lives.”

One of the major aims of the exhibit is to promote the traditions of exemplary fatherhood and family while stressing on the role of men in the developmental balance of the youth. “It is my hope that not only will these images celebrate fatherhood, but will encourage and become a source of inspiration in bringing all men closer to their families and Thrones as Kings, strengthening our communities and our people as a whole.” says the Proud Poppa and photographer.

“On a deeply personal level, Fatherhood is an opportunity to give my children that which was not given to me. My father did not raise me. His father did not raise him. I am raising my son and daughter. Unexpectedly, fatherhood has become a healing process.” ~Rod, Layla and Brock
