Father Figure

Father Figure - Exploring Alternate Notions of Black Fatherhood from Zun Lee on Vimeo.

It's amazing how the photographer Zun Lee captured some incredible images and also telling a story.There's an importance in a father & child relationship.The father figure can be perceived differently, some children are raised in a functional or dysfunctional environment.According to the article in Zun Lee was "born to a Korean mother and an African American father. Lee grew up in Germany in a dysfunctional family with an abusive Korean father who raised him." Abuse is a learned behavior. Zun Lee chose to set a different tone in an artistic form "The main thrust for Father Figure was rooted in an attempt to reconcile both aspects of my upbringing and to get a sense of closure on my personal story of father absence." I found this interesting he took an authentic approach with a tough subject. There are some men who unfortunately repeat the dark path of their creators and there are men who shed light on the issue and choose a different path.I found Zun Lee work & story very inspiring.

We laid down back to back to each other. I was upset with him about a text message a girl sent to him. There was verbal abuse for sure. He leaned over and punched me in th
