Images of Villages in Northern Ghana by Lauren Mong


Lauren Mong spent 8 months in Ghana (West Africa) during 2005, stationed at a small mission in the North of the country. She lived in a little village called Bunbonayili much as the local people did. Her home was a mud hut; she ate local food; gathered water; and did her washing by hand alongside the local women. It was an incredible experience and she managed to capture the beauty of the people and the landscape in these wonderful images.
