street photography, colorful images with high contrast and shadows in Ghana, Africa, by ivan Margot

Ivan Margot Ghana

“I first discovered Ghana when I came across the magnificent photos of Magnum Photographer Nikos Economopoulos. It made such an incredible impression on me that I promised myself that one day I would photograph in Ghana.

In Accra there are neighbourhoods comprising of young people who are looking for better jobs, which are not easy to find. Many Ghanaians have had to emigrate to neighbouring countries for this reason.

But now, with the Ghanaian economy on the rise, the youth can return to the search for better opportunities that their home country now provides them.”

Competition Judge: STEVE MCCURRY

When traveling, the only way to discover the rhythm of life of a place is to experience it.

Each place we visit has its own particular look, ambiance, and atmosphere. Understanding its people, customs and traditions is vital and there’s always something unique to capture.

This summer we want to see images that communicate the life of a place in all its splendor, and trigger our memories. Whatever the subject may be: Street, Portrait, Landscape, Documentary... We want to share your journey, visually and intellectually - Let’s travel together!
