Snapshots of an Era
France has contributed to the celebrations of the Fiftieth Anniversary of the Independence of Ghana Ghana photo exhibition entitled Memories which was part of an approach to promote photography in Ghana. His goal was to preserve a precious heritage for future generations. During collection of photographic equipment throughout the country, the Crusaders were the most diverse personalities and styles more contrasted, which has led the organizers to a treatment and a very special presentation.
Three photographers, all freelance, each with a story to tell and a real talent to do so deserve to be distinguished.
