A limited-edition fine art print, produced using the highest quality ink by professional printers dedicated to the art of fine art printing. This authentic artwork will only feature exclusively in 200 prints globally. Your original purchase supports an artist.
This is a collaboration I did with a well-known, Ghanaian creative called Kweku Yeborah from the city of Accra. He helped to source the props and to bring authenticity to the shoot. Kweku also features in the images.
My concept was to celebrate how people in Ghana live. Carrying so much on their heads, this series of work portrays a part of daily life for many Ghanaians.

About the artist
Alexander Beer is an award-winning portrait and documentary photographer and director based in London, UK. He uses both analogue and digital technique.
Moving between personal projects and commercial work. Alexander has produced a complex body of photographic and video work, offering a contemporary take on the genre of portraiture.
His work has taken him all over the world to some remote areas as well as densely populated towns and cities plus some pretty precarious environments – all for the love of creating interesting photo stories.
His main objective is to create photographic narratives of people set against backgrounds in locations all over the world, bringing each image to life by capturing moments in time with a cinematic and romantic feel.
Growing up in south east Asia and Saudi Arabia before moving back to London in his teens, influenced Alex’s fascination with people, cultures, religions and diversity and this is expressed in his work.
