check out ghanaian photographer francis kokoroko’s breathtaking portraits of accra’s everyday people

September 27, 2016

The man behind the Instagram account that’s showing a whole new perspective on Ghana’s capital is none other than Francis Kokoroko. The Ashesi University alumnus is quite accomplished to have only started photography as a hobby while an undergraduate, but he’s quickly become a sought after creative, especially in the editorial realm. Just this past March, his photography landed on the cover of Signatures magazine. Kokoroko’s photography depicts Accra through portraiture, telling stories through the breathtaking moments he captures. His Instagram (@accraphoto) has amassed a humble following of nearly 10,000 and is growing due in part to the distinct way that Kokoroko’s lens frames the people he shoots. The beauty, the depth, the narrative– all of these elements make his photography sensational. View a small sample of his work below.
