The pandemic happened to co-incide with the one-year anniversary of my return home to Accra. In many ways, being here in the midst of this global crisis has furthered my process of rediscovery into Ghana’s past and its narratives—both biographical and national—that have inspired my work on the continent and abroad. I chose to take this photograph in Black Star Square because it is not just a symbol or historical ode to the past but a beacon that will speak to a vibrant future as Accra’s infrastructure and cultural fabric continue to evolve.”
