The Youth of Accra

The Korle Lagoon1 flows into the Gulf of Guinea, the northeasternmost part of the tropical Atlantic Ocean.

It is not only a reservoir of pollution and waste, but also a place where dreams, vivid memories, pain, secrets, and struggles all come together.

Hundreds of young people are growing up along its banks, doing all sorts of hazardous work. These photographs chronicle youth and life in and along the Korle — just one afternoon, with some extras.
