Making of One Finger Cannot Pick a Stone

For this project, I interviewed the overlord King Yaa Naa, whose court is at Yendi, various paramount chiefs, court elders, drummers and fiddlers, university academicians, an Islamic scholar and a traditional land priest. I listened to their stories and staged performative photographs from those stories, together with communities, turned into actors. To ensure a culturally accurate visual iconography, local artists and artisans helped to build the large decorative sets, using locally sourced materials.
