80.02   Africa >  Introduction to Ghana 
  
Information on photography within the boundaries of the Gold Coast present day Ghana is fragmentary and a considerable amount of research still needs to be carried out to establish a framework. Ghanian studio photographer Francis K. Honny (1914-1998)[1] deserves wider recognition as does the work of the Lutterodt family.[2]
