Fishing in Accra:
In the middle of the night, men go out on their wooden boats to fish. In the early morning hours they start coming back from the sea. The port is a busy place where boats are handcrafted and repaired, where nets are repaired and checked. Young boys transport the heavy loads of fish on their heads from the boats to the merchants. Their pay is a handful of fish from the load for each transport. You can see in their eyes the focus, the concentration, the strength.
Women on the beach are handling the organization and the sales.
The trash on the beaches is washed up from the big container ships offshore that are illegally unloading their waste. This causes a huge problem for the environment and the communities.
