Positive Africa by Derrick Ofosu Boateng

22-year-old Ghanaian rising-star, Derrick O. Boateng, is inspired by the richness of the African lifestyle. Radiating positivity and energy, Derrick’s ultra bright afro pop portraits offer a new perspective on Africa,- often viewed through a limited lens in film and media.

Cheaper than a digital camera, his father’s iPhone camera was his first foray into photography, a tool he kept throughout the years to owning the nickname of the ” iPhone artist” today.

Le Sourire by Derrick Ofosu Boateng

Through his art, he is inspired to represent the beauty and visual poetry of everyday African culture, lifestyles and behaviours thereby “changing the story that is told of Africa”. Though rooted in the local traditions of Ghana, he believes that the intimate images he captures are representation of life anywhere on the continent.

The Story Of The Inseparable Friends by Derrick Ofosu Boateng

"Photography has always made me happy, since I was a child, and now it means something important to me because it is the way I have to defend the idea that Africa is not just something negative."
