FACES OF ACCRA: FREDERICK NYAVOR

2 -min. read

Photographer Frederick Nyavor (otherwise known as freflow pixels) is a living example of the fact that Africa is Not One Story. Based in Accra, Ghana, he has only been in photography for a year and a half but has already captured a series of vibrant images of characters in the capital. In Nyavor’s words, “I desire to sell the beauty of Africa: to tell its beautiful story to the rest of the globe”. Here, he tells us a few of those stories…


STREET LIFE, ACCRA HIGH WAY

hard work pays

LOCATION: Makola Market, Accra
STORY: This picture was taken on the streets of Ghana’s busy market, Makola. The image depicts how these young men make a living each day of their life through ‘truck pushing’, a mini four-wheel tire with a board for conveying loads to and from the market centre. As the saying goes, “DO YOU KNOW THE FIRST RULE OF HUSTLING? DEMAND AND SUPPLY…”
