Where did it begin? What went wrong? And who made you feel so worthless?
if they wanted you, wouldn’t they have chosen you?
All this time, you were begging for love silently, thinking they couldn’t hear you, but they smelt it on you, you must have known that they could taste the desperate on your skin?
And what about the others that would do anything for you, why did you make them love you until you could not stand it?
How are you both of these women, both flighty and needful?
Where did you learn this, to want what does not want you?
Where did you learn this, to leave those that want to stay?
The product of this weekend’s work
THE SHUTTERED GHANAIAN
“ THE SHUTTERED GHANAIAN is my first collective of a miscellany of unique Ghanaian portraits shot in Accra, Ghana.
I have always had a creative side. Picking up a camera just helped me to express it more. I’m on a journey with my creative self to portray my heart. I believe in the art of photography and not the science of it. It is my desire to document my time, in a way which would be remembered even in the minutest way or through the most simplest ways.”.
