Cover Image - Sackitey Tesa

Ghanaian ​​photographer and stylist Sackitey Tesa creates dreamy fashion imagery from a distinctly African perspective, collaborating with local creatives and experimenting with color, props, and unexpected poses. In 2020, Sackitey collaborated with WePresent to create a project titled “Atsɛɛ niŋ afɔɔɔ,” which translates as “things are not meant to be thrown away.” For the photo series, models were dressed in outfits made by upcycling tailors in Accra’s Kantamanto clothing market—drawing attention to social issues around the second-hand clothing industries and the creative potential of upcycling.
