I met Chelsea Boatey in the summer of 2012 on the streets of NYC. Just like me, she was a Ghanaian living outside. She models, she photographs, she writes. We shared a lot of common interests as creatives finding our space and telling our unique stories. Her talents spread far across.
Chelsea has been a great source of encouragement to my development as a photographer. On her visit to Accra this year, we got together after two years to make portraits once more. These portraits have been featured on Dr Yaba Blay’s on website which is an ongoing visual tribute to Brown skin. A visionary testament to black beauty, a vision board for healing

My friend TJ Letsa (www.tjletsa.tumblr.com) takes some of the best photographs of me, I feel. All his images of me speak to who I really am. I find them to be the most authentic still representations of me. Our friendship allows him to capture raw moments, uncontrived and more often than not, vulnerable, as we always seem to meet to discuss life and it’s abundance of curveballs…good and bad.

He is such a talent with an eye for story telling and vivid imagery. A complete food snob, a lawyer in the making and one of the best photographers that will come out of Ghana when it’s all said and done.
