In the artist’s own words: “People in Senya rely on shing to live a life. The colors of the boats are a perfect representation of Ghana, lively and colorful. Family of the fishermen would wait anxiously by the shore to welcome them back from a long day of work. It’s when the waves are really strong so young men will also be there to offer a hand to pull them over. The strong sense of community, support and love that I felt at that moment makes it unforgettable.”
