Dzifa’s interest in photography was first piqued by her father’s love of taking photos wherever and whenever his family traveled together, be it to the flea market in the next county or the coastal village of his upbringing, long eroded by the sea. He passed on this interest to his daughter when she decided to take black and white photography as her studio art in high school. She was rather shy and somewhat of a wall-flower so being behind the camera gave her the opportunity to capture the spirit and essence of those around her without being an active participant. Over the years, she has captured and combined her love of traveling, Africa, family, roots, people, water, exploring, mangoes, questioning, challenging and observing life in the mundane, simple and complex forms it takes. There will always be a piece of her that is part player, part voyeur that revels in the experience of life as it is. This thirst, this need to see the world both intrinsically and physically has lead her to travels that include Mali, Ghana, Nigeria, Mauritania, Cuba and Spain. The medium of photography has allowed her insight into the both the vastness and the village of the world in which we live.
