Photography as defined by Elliot Erwitt is “an art of observation, its about finding something interesting in an ordinary place, it has little to do with things you see and everything to do with how you see them”.
Photography in Ghana today has evolved from being a hobby to an art and profession. YEN.com.gh writer shares with readers his top six photographers who capture the best images that meet the eye (at least my eyes).
Note that my list is in no particular order and its also a very subjective one. My top six photographers, I believe, will keep redefining the rules of photography.
Emmanuel Bobbie-Bob Pixel
Emmanuel Bobbie aka Bob Pixel is in his own league as the king of natural light and he has an eye for perfection and knows how to capture it with his shutter. He is also loved for his humble attitude and teachable spirit.
Senyuiedzorm Awusi Adadevoh
Ms Adadvoh is a lady in her own league, celebrated as one of the pioneering women in a male-dominated field. As a sports photographer, she is responsible for all the impressive and admirable images we see of the Ghana Premier League and Black Stars. She is good; no doubt about that.
Nana Kofi Acquah
Nana Kofi Acquah
He is very passionate about what he does and manages to capture the most iconic shots, while addressing societal issues. No wonder he has such a massive following on social media and is celebrated all over the continent.
Ofoe is a photography genius. You can’t sit with the guy literally. He has no competition.
Philip Kofi Ashon
He is a young, enthusiastic lad who loves to tell the African story by capturing nature. 'Foyoo' as he is known by some friends is a budding photographer and one for the future.
Gilbert makes us gush in admiration of the way he captures the simplest things in life and those boudoir shots…Epic!!!
