Q: First Time Wedding Photographer

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

Every Sunday morning at the Triumph International School, my host father (pictured here), the founder of the school, father of two and guardian of ten, reads passages from the bible hoping to instill strong morals and values in the young, impressionable children of the school. The congregation is made up predominantly of children and for the majority of the service they are singing beautiful melodic songs in English and Twi and dancing to the beat of a three-piece drum (sometimes accompanied by tambourines). With little exposure to pop music from the West, Gospel is the most popular genre in Ghana and it is remarkable how different the culture is as a result of this, particularly in that of the youth culture. While American children are being exposed to a materialistic and heavily sexualized media driven society, Ghanaian children are happy and satisfied with their much simpler and wholesome lifestyle, only concerned with importantly things like family, religion, education and health.

    this shot reminds me of the things that matter in life, its not the fancy clothes, nor the cool digs... its when you get to do the things you love and serve humanity in your own way...

    Awesome shot, and great description of what is going on, in that side of the world... if we only had the same morals here in america, we could live up to it's expectations.
