Philip Kwame Apagya from Ghana featured in Snapped

Snapped is a new photography magazine/review... seeing it on the Web probably doesn't do it justice, but looks fascinating... will any kids in Bolgatanga ever get to see these?

"The use of bright coloured backdrops creates an alternative reality in which all the convenience of Western Consumer culture are at the subject's fingertips while simultaneously playing with the viewers ability to read what we see at first glance. Apagya's work turns a flat canvas backdrop into an opulent suburban fantasy remade regularly to reflect current trends, popular fads and the wishes of his clients."
