Remnants of a Haunted Past: Forts and Castles of Ghana (Photo Book, Hardcover)
Yaw Pare is a celebrated Ghanaian photographer. This ground-breaking book richly illustrates the history and legacies of Ghana’s forts and castles through photography. In the same way that the forts and castles themselves bear witness to the horrors of the transatlantic slave trade and slavery, so too do these photographs provide compelling material and visual testimonies, offering possibilities for understanding that words do not.
In this book, the photographer’s camera captures a reality that many choose to remember but just as many choose to forget. Ultimately, Remnants of a Haunted Past: Forts and Castles of Ghana constitutes an attempt to document the past so that it is never forgotten in the present.

Yaw Pare is a Ghanaian traveler and photographer changing the Ghanaian narrative through his lens.
Unknown to many, the gentleman who is celebrated for his photography has no training in photography. Everything he knows has been self-taught.
A born artist, Yaw painted in various mediums with pencil, charcoal, oil/watercolour and stippling till he found photography. According to him, he felt it was quite time-consuming and changed his art to capture images when he moved to Ghana. According to Mr Pare who is an adventurous globetrotter he first started shooting Ghana in 2010 after living in the United States for close to 16 years.
Yaw is not only changing the way we see Ghana but most of all he is connecting people together through photos of what it means to be Ghanaian.
