The representation of the world as unseen on a day-to-day through the lens is so admirable. Photography has grown in leaps and bounds over the centuries since the invention of the camera in the 1800s.
Invention has continued to introduce a myriad other technological innovation like the cellphone which also comes with camera inclusion. We have seen different visual artists presenting different kinds of art through their photography work. Prince Gyasi is one such artist who is a visual artist and uses his iPhone to capture moments. His work focuses on representing the beauty of Africa, he is particularly inspired by his hometown Accra, Ghana.
This young man is a Ghanaian born and is driven by passion and positivity. It is not surprising therefore, to see the work he does which is a splurge of color and African textured representations.
Princes’ work is so intriguing because of his unconventional approach that shows that being intentional and open minded about achieving a goal does not have to be deterred by any kind of setback. It is a known tale along the business streets to “start where you are to get to where you desire” and Prince went and disrupted the norms through his choice of gadget utilizing his phone to create aesthetic imagery.
This photographer aims to create hope and resilience through his work for the subjects he uses, and also paint Africa as a place of color and good energy. This he does intentionally to shy away from the usual struggle that Africa has been seen to have through media. This is a move that is needful to spread good vibes or energy across the continent. A case of focusing on what we have than what we do not have.
