Summer Pages: Accra, Ghana

project documents the past summer I spent as a photographer

I decided to photograph them as a way of exploring how individuals

I always want my voice to be heard in the work that I do – how I
see, how I feel, how I respond – so I thought taking a seemingly
random collection of photographs with different stories in varying
locations would help others to see the world through my eyes. In
part, the aim was to “sell” my Ghana.

It’s called Summer Pages because each photograph shows something
different and has unique significance. The message could be on the
subject’s shirt; the expression in their eyes; the curvature of
their mouth. My message is that art has the power to unite
