Vibrant Ghana, as captured by Prince Gyasi

Hi! My name is Joost Bastmeijer, a photo journalist currently traveling through Africa. I’m also the editorial coordinator of MENDO, and Amsterdam-based company that initiates, creates and designs photo books. I’m taking over the Hatje Cantz photo blog, this November. I’ll be sharing pictures of some (African and Dutch) photographers that caught my eye.

This time, I’d like you introduce you to the extremely vibrant pictures of my Ghanaian friend Prince Gyasi. He’s an iPhone photographer, who is sharing his life in his hometown Accra, via curated images that are overflowing with colour.

When Prince is not busy taking pictures, he’s working on BoxedKids, an NGO run by him and his partner. The nonprofit aims to help creative but underprivileged boys and girls from Ghana, by stimulating their creativeness and giving them (art) education.

You can follow Prince on Instagram.
