  1. Hey, what a great post! I love this type of reportage photography that chronicles people’s domestic lives and relationships. It’s reminded me of a photo book I loved when I was a kid, Children of the World I think it was called. I’ll have to dig that out next time I vist my mum. Thanks for the tip!

  2. Yes, Scandinavian dad’s are great at taking care of their kids. They are very caring and share the responsibilities in the home as well as Scandinavian women share the responsibility of providing for the household. Men and women are very equal there and it is an amazing place to grow up or raise a family. :o)
