David Nana Opoku Ansah

Filmmaker / Photographer

David Nana Opoku Ansah is an artist, image-maker, and filmmaker from Accra, Ghana whose ethos is: “all things are worth photographing”. He creates work centred around freedom, community, vulnerability, culture, and humanity to challenge the nexus of fashion, contemporary image-making, and portraiture. David’s critically acclaimed ongoing project “Area Boys” captures the theme of freedom, vulnerability, truth, and what it means for coming-of-age Ghanaian boys. 

He was selected as one of the five African image-makers to reflect on their shared trajectories to James Barnor’s archive in April 2021 at Piccadilly Circus in London. In July 2021, he exhibited work at Le Carreau du Temple in Paris, France. David shot his first magazine cover featuring Kendrick Lamar and got selected as one of the 50 creatives globally for the British fashion awards NEW CREATIVE CLASS of 2022. He has worked with brands including Gucci, Off-White, Nike, Farfetch, Vogue International, Circa, Highsnobiety, Maison Margiela, Reebok, Adidas, Dazed, Culture Art Society, Teen Vogue, New Era Europe, Byredo among others.
