Adrian Morris The Ghana Coast

Ghana, formerly known as the Gold Coast until changing its name, was one of the first African countries to gain independence from colonial rule in 1957. It is a unique country on the west coast of Africa rich in resources such as gold and cacao and recently oil. It has a rich and vibrant culture and a dark history of being one of the main ports for the importing and exporting of slaves around the world by European countries that had built their forts a long the coastline.

Shot in between personal projects during a few weeks spent travelling from East to West along the coast of Ghana in early 2018, this series of photos is a portrayal through my eyes of the current day to day life and culture of the communities that live and work along the 537km of coast line that belong to Ghana.

Note: One of Adrian’s images from The Ghana Coast was selected as finalist of the 2018 Documentary Award by American photographer and competition judge Mustafah Abdulaziz.
