Nana Kofi Acquah, Photographer
Nana Kofi Acquah is one of our talented photojournalists and bloggers. Raised in Ghana, Nana relishes the opportunity to tell the African story, seeking to challenge perceptions of the continent through striking imagery and emotive, but hopeful, story-telling.
As the first recipient of the Tim Hetherington and World Press Photo Fellowship, Nana has received high-level praise for his ability to champion the continent, particularly his work in advocating women’s rights in Africa.
Nana has played an important role in telling Global Health Stories from across our programs in Africa, including a leprosy program in Tanzania, hypertension and telemedicine programs in Ghana and our new urban health initiative, Better Hearts Better Cities in Dakar, Senegal.
Alongside his work for the Press Association and non-governmental organizations, Nana is part of the Everyday Africa group (@everydayafrica), an Instagram feed that aims to deliver images that counter the stereotypes of Africa.
