Visual Narratives: Artist Studio Visit - Eric Gyamfi
Tuesday, 30 June, 5 pm CEST (Berlin), 3 pm GMT (Accra), online via Zoom
This event is part of Archiving the Mo(ve)ment by Okhiogbe Omonblanks Omonhinmin.
Omonblanks takes us to visit Accra-based visual artist Eric Gyamfi in his studio virtually, for an introduction to his visual practice and a visit behind the scenes.
Photography is a way of storytelling. Eric Gyamfi uses photography as a tool for social commentary, storytelling and documentation of the moment, as a mode of communication and social critique. The studio visit allows for a wider audience to explore his images and the stories behind them, and interact with the artist.
The studio visit will take place online, via Zoom. No registration needed. Visitors are asked to join the event with their cameras on.

Gyamfi has a background in documentary photography.
