The entire village of Nzulezo is built on a lake in the western region of Ghana. The ancestors of the town are fabled to have migrated with the help of a snail from the Malian city of Timbuktu, the trade center of Africa between the 11th and 15th centuries.
Ghanaian-born photographer George Qua-Enoo capture scenes of coastal life from around the country, including the areas where he grew up. George is a photographer based in Ontario, Canada.
“Although I left Ghana for South Africa when I was 16 years old, I’ve been back many times, since most of my relatives are there,” George says. “I have a strong connection to the country and feel at home when I am there. I think this enables me to capture authentic and dignified portraits of the people.”
