It is social commentary exploring a range of diverse issues endemic in the West African country of Ghana, using personal imagery and original writings during a visit in the summer of 2010.
Covered in the writings are social, political, economic and spiritual issues gleaned in Ghana but which are also reflective of similar issues faced in many countries across the continent and complemented by a stunning array of related photography.
It chronicles personal reflections of the author on the changes that have occurred in his land of birth since he moved to the United Kingdom in the late 90s and those that have remained stagnant.
A very thought-provoking book and a must-read!
