Evans Ahorsu, a Ghanaian-based visual storyteller (b. 1991) loves to focus his lens on humanitarian issues in his society which are often overshadowed by political news. An excellent eye for rural picture concepts, he also loves to take pictures which communicate on their own on many different levels. His specialty is in documentary, non-profit, commercial, and portrait photography and he primarily works with non-profit and international organisations, helping them share their stories through photography and multimedia narratives. His work frequently focuses on women empowerment, agriculture, tradition and education.
Following his certification in visual arts from the West African senior high school at the Kpando Senior high School in 2009, Evans went on to obtain a professional certificate in graphic and web design from the IPMC Institution of Technology in Accra in 2010. Since then, he has taken on jobs as either photographer or graphic designer with various organisations. In 2018 he participated at the Nuku Studio Photography exhibition which formed part of the Nuku photography festival and in April 2019 he participated in the group exhibition 'Stories from the North' of iMpact Doc Photography at Noorderlicht Huis van de Fotografie in Groningen, The Netherlands. His work features in some publications and he received quite a few awards- among them are the Portraits Ghana finalist in 2018, where his work was hung at the Netherlands Embassy in Accra, and one of the top 100 best photographers at the 35awards in Ghana in 2018.
