Ghana 2019

The Republic of Ghana is among the 20 fastest growing nations in the world. Abundant in natural resources, it is a vibrant country moving to the forefront of West Africa's regional economic sphere. As it modernizes, Ghana also faces challenges from marginalizing traditional industries, confronting its history, and countering human trafficking, narcotics, and illicit fishing and mining.

In 2019, I captured these images in and around the capital of Accra, as well as in the Cape Coast, Gomoa and Twifo/Heman/Lower Denkyira Districts of Central Ghana. In particular, you'll see images of the Cape Coast Castle, one of forty pivotal fortresses enabling the historic European trade in enslaved labor. You'll see Ghanaians at work in traditional fishing work along the central coast and in Accra. And you'll see images of traditional markets and street vending in Cape Coast, Lower Denkyira and Gomoa.
