Photos from author Richard Wright’s (1908-1960) trip to Ghana in 1953.

I like the ordinariness of these images, how they portray everyday African urbanism. There is also an unclear sensation of the photographer as an observer, perhaps something Wright could relate to as an African-American traveler in Africa.
