Winner of the Ben Franklin Award for Coffee Table/Large Format Book (2008)

New Hampshire native, and award-winning photographer, Peter E. Randall and five other New Hampshire photographers visited and photographed Ghana in 2006, on the eve of Ghana's 50th anniversary as the first sub-Saharan colony to become an independent nation.
Following in the footsteps of photographer Paul Strand, who photographed Ghana 40 years earlier, this group of photographers has captured a rare present-day portrait of this colorful, friendly, and fascinating country. Six different photographers present six different styles and six different views.
Abena P. A. Busia, associate professor of English at Rutgers, and coordinator of the Women Writing Africa Project wrote the remarkable essay that gives context and deeper meaning to the full color images presented in this beautiful and timely book.
