PHOTOGRAPHER RAISES $1M TO BUILD PHOTO LIBRARY IN GHANA
Paul Ninson, a New York based Ghanaian photographer, has raised over $1M in 3 days to build the first photo library in Ghana.
The photoblog @humansofny, shared Paul’s story in a 12 part post. They revealed his journey from becoming a young father, struggling to carve out a photography career, to attending the International Center of Photography in New York.
They also shared his dream to build the largest photo library in Africa, and a link to a Go Fund Me campaign for the venue which will be called the Dikan Center.
In just 3 days, the monetary goal had been met with some donors funding as much as $2000 at a time.
The Dikan Center will be fully dedicated to photography, media, film and visual archives, with an extensive collection of photobooks focused on Africa.
