Women of Ghana Photography Exhibition

This free photography and film exhibition shows the stories of a selection of strong and inspirational women, mostly from the Northern Region of Ghana. This exhibition has previously been shown in Hoxton, Goldsmiths University and even in the Houses of Parliament! So now is a great opportunity to come and see this special event at The Albany in honour of Black History Month.

The images and stories were captured by event organiser/photographer

 

Anisha Patel, who had the privilege to meet these women whilst volunteering with the UK Government funded International Service and International Citizen Service Programme in Ghana. The women featured have taken control over their lives and worked hard to achieve their ambitions, overcoming hardships such as poverty, low levels of literacy or just simply being a woman.

 

Come along to see the images and learn more about the women from their own stories.

 

Anisha will also be holding a special talk on Thursday 26 October where she will discuss the photographs and the women she met.
