Kwasi Kyei

Kwasi Kyei, a Ghanaian-born, Toronto-based photographer, grew up in Cape Coast, Ghana, and trained at the National Film and Television Institute (NAFTI). Influenced by artists including James Barnor, Kyei’s practice revolves around themes of identity and place. He works in black-and-white photography in an attempt to minimize distraction, to focus on form, feeling, and depth. His first solo exhibition, Immanuel, presented in Accra in 2017, offered an exploration of the physical form beyond skin, speaking to the spirit without judgment.
