Who Knows Tomorrow is a work Nii Obodai made collaborating with his friend, French Algerian photographer, Bruno Boudjelal. Over a period of two years they travelled through Ghana discussing and philosophising what independence meant to them and the legacy of Kwame Nkrumah’s vision. The photographs were made during a series of road trips. It become a poetic response to the dialogue and experience they had. Who knows tomorrow is made up of four visual poems: 1966, Portraits As We Are, Galamse, and The Passing.
Francis Nii Obodai Provencal was born-and is currently based-in Accra, Ghana. He has also lived in England and Nigeria. Provencal’s work explores our expansive relationship with aspects of urban and rural culture, and the environment. His camera is not a detached eye, but a tool for conscious expression of self-discovery: both on his part and for others involved in front of his lens or, part of the audience seeing his work. Nii Obodai has exhibited widely.
