Ghanaian London

In large cities like London people protect themselves through communities that mirror their homeland, but also draw cultural borders. Crossing the border takes my freedom of being an unnoticed soul in the streets of the metropolis but give me the excitement of being an outsider with license to look through the camera to a complex world I hardly know.

These photographs are impressions of the Ghanaian community, looking at identity aspects and diasporan elements.

These photographs were taken around areas of East and north London such are Dalston, Homerton, Stamford Hill, Tottenham and Plaistow.
