“Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different
way’. “[It] seeing what everyone else has seen, and thinking what no one else has thought.”
These are some of the many beautiful quotes that define me as an artistic person and a
photographer. My name is Evans Ahorsu. I am Ghanaian-based visual storyteller who loves to focus my lens on humanitarian issues in our society which are often overshadowed by political news. I have an excellent eye for rural picture concepts and I also love to take pictures that communicate on their own on many different levels. I capture people in their worlds because I'm curious about what's going on behind their eyes, where they've been, and where they want to go.
I use photography to represent myself – I create images for myself in order to identify with unknown aspects of my personality, to better understand my existence, and to express my view of the world around me. A better perception of myself and my surroundings allows me to discuss snippets of life in an abstract way, as well as communicate with others with whom I would not otherwise be able to interact. My ambition is to use my camera to open up a previously unexplored space, a place of fascinating self-expression, but also a world of new connections, new opportunities, new beginnings, and, most importantly, new stories.”
