An avowed fan of football, music and the 7th art, Derrick embodies the youth of the continent who have taken over the internet in no time. His works are emblematic of the media mix, produced with Iphone.

Deeply marked by Anglo-Saxon culture, he dares to use color through everyday scenes exclusively devoted to “feel good". These characters celebrate the black body, always crowned with bright, inspiring tones. Equipped with trumpets and tasty-looking fruits, they go beyond the perception of movement: they are inhabited, embodied, they overflow with life and communicative energy.

“I consider photography to be a determining tool for interacting with as many people as possible in different places around the world. The stories are exceptional, full of emotion and life. In my eyes, it is important that my work represents an Africa in a positive light, this contributes to greatly changing the perception of the continent. Many people write to me on social networks to tell me that my photographs have changed their vision, that makes me very happy, "he explains.

A keen observer on the lookout for what characterizes his environment, he is inspired by childhood, by musical culture. A man-orchestra, he makes a point of thinking and refining the staging of his works.

It is a portrait dedicated to a man from Niger, who came to work in Accra in order to create his fabric company there, which contributed to the fame of this young photographer.

Over the course of these discussions, the story of this migrant touched Derrick deeply. A photograph of this blissful-looking man, his eyes closed, wearing a multitude of fabrics folded over his head, crystallized this human encounter because "he declared to have found peace and freedom in Ghana" confides the photographer.
