Renowned and accomplished Ghanaian photographer Thomas Fynn is in California, USA, showcasing African and Ghanaian culture to the world.

The themes of his photographic exhibition, Spirit Possession: Celebration of Ghanaian faces, African Culture and Heritage, range from ecotourism to ethno-cultural displays to old historic landmarks.

Mr. Fynn hopes to raise awareness of Ghana as a top travel destination globally, encourage cultural appreciation, and accelerate Ghana’s economic development through the exhibition.

The event is a partnership between master African-American textile artist and cultural bearer Allyson Allen and Mr. Thomas Appleton Lamb, an American landscape and ethnographic photographer.

The show juxtaposes Allen’s modern hand-created textiles with traditional Ghanaian materials.

Spirit Possession began on Saturday, June 1 and will run until June 29, 2024, at the Orange County Center for Contemporary Art (OCCCA) in Santa Ana, California.

About 650 people attended the June 1 opening reception.

The Juneteenth Celebration includes a month-long art stroll and photography display.
