Sands of Joy

Year:

2020

Our project, focused on the pursuit of freedom for African people, led us to Cape Coast Castle along Ghana's historic shores. As we explored the castle's chambers, an unexpected journey unfolded when we arrived at the tranquil beach behind it. Here, we witnessed the embodiment of true freedom in carefree children playing along the shoreline.

For these youngsters, the beach was an escape from their daily burdens, akin to the endless waves they frolicked in. Their infectious joy served as a poignant reminder of our tendency to overthink life. It emphasized the power of cherishing life's positives and embracing our unique journeys.

Watching these children revel in pure happiness was captivating. Their laughter and playfulness drew smiles from onlookers and passersby. This experience reshaped our project's purpose. Beyond documenting freedom, we aimed to share the simple, boundless joy found in life's brighter moments. Like ripples in the sea, this joy can touch and uplift everyone's spirits. Inspired by these young souls, we recognized that by embracing life's joy, we can make our collective journey through the sea of life more vibrant and meaningful.
