Creative Ghanaian photographer Elroy Salam just granted us a fabulous editorial featuring hard grinding and artistic Ghanaian model Kojo Osei. The collaboration was beyond captivating! As if Kojo Osei is not an unorthodox artistic visual masterpiece by himself, the quirky direction of Elroy Salam birthed outstanding results from the collaboration of the two.
Elroy Salam executed his work with Kojo at the Seashores of Accra which signalled memories of an outstanding poem by Rabindranath Tagore, so we decided to marry the two together.
On the seashore of endless worlds children meet
The infinite sky is motionless overhead and the restless water is boisterous. On the seashore of endless worlds the children meet with shouts and dances.
They build their houses with sand, and they play with empty shells. With withered leaves they weave their boats and smilingly float them on the vast deep. Children have their play on the seashore of worlds.
They know not how to swim, they know not how to cast nets. Pearl-fishers dive for pearls, merchants sail in their ships, while children gather pebbles and scatter them again. They seek not for hidden treasures, they know not how to cast nets.
The sea surges up with laughter, and pale gleams the smile of the sea-beach. Death-dealing waves sing meaningless ballads to the children, even like a mother while rocking her baby’s cradle. The sea plays with children, and pale gleams the smile of the sea-beach.
On the seashore of endless worlds children meet. Tempest roams in the pathless sky, ships are wrecked in the trackless water, death is abroad and children play. On the seashore of endless worlds is the great meeting of children.
