Despite the stunning environment and rich surrounding landscape by Jeremy Snell.
Boys of Volta
Lake Volta is the largest man-made lake in the world. Spanning across half of Ghana, its surface is scattered with eerie tree trunks emerging from glassy waters. The trafficking of children and child labor in this region has a lot to do with the complex economic and social history of the Ghanaians residing around the lake. Young children are targeted for fishing because of their mobility and small hands for untangling nets. This series hopes to capture some of the solitude and innocence of young children entrapped in this reality. .Follow Snell’s projects that document life around the world on Instagram. https://www.jeremysnell.com/boys-of-volta
