In the artist’s own words: “I took this photo on what is called a “Tro tro” in Senya, Ghana. Tro tros are the main form of transportation. When I traveled to Ghana with The Akumanyi Foundation on a Buck-I-SERV trip, Tro tros were how we got from place to place. The fun thing about them is that oftentimes we were surrounded by Ghanaians who were always interested as to what a group of Americans was doing in Senya and we were able to share a bit about our trip with them in our time on the Tro tro. The people pictured in this photo are different Ghanaians traveling home from the city at the end of the day.”
