Ghanaian photographer Eric Gyamfi first started the Just Like Us photography series to “document an aspect of my history that I feel has not been documented”. Same-sex relationships are illegal in Ghana and against this backdrop Gyamfi strives to celebrate the queer community and remove the stigma of 'otherness' associated with it. Gyamfi sees his work as a way of establishing the Ghanaian queer community’s presence “Not just for the rest of the population but to provide a space for us in history.”
In this exhibition Gyamfi has created a series of constellations from his images that are displayed alongside his research notes, allowing viewers to discover more about the mechanics behind his works.
