Kwabena Sekyi Appiah-nti works across the genres of documentary, fashion and lifestyle. His work focuses on people who are prejudicially perceived and misunderstood. Through an analogue photography style, the colours in his images are warm and radiate a softness that give his subjects a poetic feel. This approach results in idealised and dignified images, aiming to document the true essence of his subjects. With his project, titled Golden Boy, he wants to improve the image of black youth in the media, and subvert the traditional rhetoric by associating them with excellence, riches and true beauty.
