Tyrone Z. McCants, a visual artist and photographer known for his brilliant work in portraiture and photojournalism were he 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 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 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.
