Coast of many colours

The Ivory Coast has been in the news for many reasons… most of them not so positive or downright horrible. I’ve had the privilege of shooting here for a week now, and since it is my first time after the recent war, I cannot help but admire the people of this beautiful land again. Ivory Coast series Ivory Coast seriesIvorians definitely rank high up there as some of the world’s colourful, stylish people any one can ever meet.

These are really busy times. I leave for Lagos today. See you soon. xxx Nana

these pictures just took me back to 2001 when i was there. AND THAT BLUE DOLL [!!!!!!!!!!!!] just took me back 25 years!!!!!!
Akua, you have no idea how similar Ghanaians and Ivorians are. They are pretty much a bunch of Ghanaians who migrated about 400 years ago.

I am in Nigeria now, let's see how here goes

So much color and vibrance! And never thought i'd ever say I like a picture of a plantain/banana leaf... but yours has an abstract linear sort of splash art feel to it. Or perhaps i'm just making things up...:-) anyway, nice piece!

A Facebook friend forwarded me your blog, and I'm so glad he did. I'm in love with your work! Your work is so beautiful, tender, real, and expressive. I am a photographer in the US, and I dream of visiting Africa, well, Ghana in particular. And you have successfully stirred up a feeling of desperation inside me... that is, I am desperate to come over there! Thank you for sharing your perspectives and photos through this blog. I will come back regularly to see your latest posts! ~Obroni Maame Akua Ashley :)
