 Philip Kwame Apagya
"In Africa, a photo studio is the place where dreams come true... Apagya's formal portraits in front of commissioned painted backgrounds are both unreal and hyperealistic: the dreams of african people are put on stage - against scenery which praises consumer society."

 Portrait Africa: a century of photographic standpoints

Photography as a medium of technical progress has emancipated the African photographer from the weight of 'centuries-old traditions', a category in which western audiences still tend to put African artists."
