Pop: A Celebration of Black Fatherhood : In 51 visually stunning, emotionally compelling portraits, acclaimed photographer Carol Ross presents a hopeful, heartwarming, and caring view of black fatherhood in the United States. In an era that pays little positive attention to black fathers, Ross's inspirational perspective on the relationships between black men and their children is vitally important - and long overdue. Ross's richly textured duotone photographs reveal a group of devoted fathers whose common bond is their profound love for their children. For her subjects, Ross has selected men from all walks of life - college professors, filmmakers, technicians, construction workers, and corporate executives - along with well-known music executives, directors, entertainers, and actors. Each portrait is accompanied by a poignant personal recollection by the father depicted.
