Bath Spa University students put dads in the picture for new Celebrating Fatherhood display
It's a special bond – and it's being recognised as more important than ever.
The magic of fatherhood is being celebrated at an exhibition of images of dads and their children in Bath.
The Celebrating Fatherhood display at the city's central library runs until Saturday and features pictures taken at events around the Bath area.
The exhibition showcases the work of five aspiring photographers studying at Bath Spa University, with images chosen for the way they capture the enjoyment and affection that children receive from spending time with their dads and other male carers.

The event is part of the Celebrating Fatherhood campaign run by Bath and North East Somerset Council to recognise the importance of healthy male role models in children's lives.
Council cabinet member for early years, children and youth Councillor Dine Romero (Lib Dem, Southdown), said: "Fathers and other male role models have such an important role to play in helping to ensure that children enjoy their childhood and are prepared for adult life.
"The campaign supports them to do this, and the photographic exhibition is a wonderful way to recognise their importance in their children's lives. We're also pleased to showcase the artistry of some up-and-coming photographers from Bath Spa."
A selection of the photographs is also on Facebook at the Bathnes Libraries, Somer Valley Children's Centres and Bath and North East Somerset Family Information Service pages.
After the exhibition, the photographs taken by students Oliver Merchant, Saskia Rumbelow, Amee Hole, James Callison and Matt Dear will be put on display at the council's 11 children's centres.
The Celebrating Fatherhood campaign is sponsored by the Local Safeguarding Children Board and also raises awareness of the support available to fathers and their families.
