OD Photo Prize 2023 | Shortlisted Artists
Jude Lartey [b. 2000] is a self taught image maker from Ghana, creates portraits that carry a sensibility far beyond his age. Also moonlighting as an art director and fashion stylist for brands, magazines and artists, Lartey’s cinematic scenes are illustrations of new identities of his generation; dreams, fashions and evolutions. Both his documentary as well as his fashion rooted photography showcase an interwoven reality where harsh everyday life is in subtle or stark contrast to the confident and joyful energy that oozes from Accra’s booming creative and international community. A young mirror to an era and culture.
Artist Statement | “Land of the Morees is a cinematic snapshot of the intricacies of daily life in a small fishing community located on the outskirts of Accra, Ghana. An ongoing project which focuses on documenting the beauty & culture of the Moreesians.” — Jude Lartey
