Snaps of Ghana Project

Welcome to Snaps of Ghana, American poet Van G. Garrett's photographic and poetic tribute to Ghana. The photos used in the show were taken by Van during his travels in Ghana in 2008.

Snaps of Ghana was originally published on OGOV serially throughout August 2009. After it's full publication, Van sent us the following note:

September 8, 2009

Dear One Ghana, One Voice and its Supporters:

Thank you for supporting my month-long literary and visual arts exhibit. Snaps of Ghana: Poetry and Photography is my way of highlighting a fraction of the beauty found in Ghana. I read every post and comment that readers submitted, and I appreciate those who took the time out to comment about my work. Additionally, I appreciate those that took a more reflective/reflexive approach.

It is heart-touching to know that my art has inspired others to look at the Continent and the world anew.

Again, I want to thank OGOV and its readers for making my first international show a successful exhibit. I look forward to creating more sincere art that challenges and educates audiences worldwide.

All the very best,

Van G. Garrett / Fui Koshi

We hope you enjoy Snaps of Ghana.
