Studentisches Projekt


I’m Ghanian and German, for years now i ́ve been trying to figure out what my identity is and why i know so little about my own culture. The only thing i knew is which ethnical group I belong to and what my local name is, my name is Adjetey and I am Ga. Ten years ago I traveled to Ghana for the first time in my (concious) life, with my family. Upon arrival, my little brother was suprised to see cars. The Image that western media had created in his mind was ba- sed on their limited perception of the global south. This made me aware of the lack of visual represantation. I want to create images that can visualise my heritage which mostly roots in the Ga community. I cant claim to portrait Ghana at large but i want to encourage people born in diaspora, like me. To visit their second home. To say it with a quote by Tyler Mitchell who puts it very clearly. „I feel an urgency to create a body of images where Black people are visualized as free, expressive, effortless, and sensitive.“
