For this week’s Amazing Africa, we’re featuring the work of ONE Blogger C.C. Chapman, who just returned from a trip to Ghana. Here are 14 amazing photos from his trip.
Photography is in my blood — and part of me dreams of being a photojournalist, traveling the world capturing and sharing stories with my images. But on my recent trip to Ghana with the ONE Moms program, I certainly got the chance to be one.
One of my favorite subjects to shoot are the faces of people I meet and I thought that would make for a fun topic in this post. Hope you enjoy them and if you want to see more of work please visit my website.
This face says so much to me. You know she has lived a tough, but powerful life and the fact that I can see myself in the reflection of her eyes makes me love it even more. This is one of the photos I’m most proud of ever taking in my entire life.
Just like doctors wear custom scrubs here in the states, I found these “Stop TB” shirts to be extremely interesting. I had taken a solo photo of the gentleman on the left and then he tracked me down to take this photo of him and his co-worker. I still owe him a copy!
Oh, the children. Once their friends were excited about them taking your photo, everyone wanted their photo taken. This photo began as a photo of one single child and before I know it I was swarmed. Talk about a rush of fun filled energy.
