Ghana Photographed By Luke Moore

These travel photographs were taken in Ghana by Capetonian photographer Luke Moore during his recent visit. In his own words:

“In April 2012, my mother and her friend left Cape Town on a 2 year trip across West Africa, travelling with nothing but a border collie and their Land Rover. I had been planning to meet up with them somewhere along the way and decided that Ghana would have to be that country. So in January 2013, I jumped on a plane to Accra with a bag of clothes and my camera.

“The first thing I noticed as I stepped off the plane was the humidity, the second being the private car to taxi ratio – it seemed like everyone in Ghana was either a taxi driver or a fisherman. But more importantly, the third thing I noticed was how happy everyone was. Ghana must be one of the most beautiful countries I have ever been to. This made it a photographer’s paradise.

“Before I had even left South Africa, I knew it was going to be a challenging trip, from a photography side, as all I had was my body, a 10-20mm and a 50mm f/1.8. But none the less, I accepted the challenge! The two weeks flew past, and I soon found my self back in Cape Town with a mountain of editing to do. Here are a few of my favorite images that showcase my experience of this amazing part of the world.”
