Thanks to his latest book, Losing It At Home, we’re once again mesmerized by Accra-based photographer Nana Yaw Oduro’s bold use of colors, the depth of his pictures, and the light that just shines through them. As an artist living and working in Ghana, Nana has always been reflective of his surroundings, and even with his quickly growing international recognition, he has remained rooted in his local scene and determined to help others in it.
This ability to observe is what became the drive for Nana’s latest book, Losing It At Home which is oriented around one question: if people can’t live and thrive in their homeland, how could they win elsewhere? Losing It At Home is about letting go of frustration, suppressed anger, and feeling powerless. Although very personal, the book is a visual diary that accounts for life happening around Nana: an outlet of overflowing emotions from all over the spectrum.
