Public Houses

“A photograph is not created by a photographer. What they do is just to open a little window and capture it. The world then writes itself the film. The act of the photographer is closer to reading than it is to writing. They are the readers of the world.”

In this project I looked into British pubs.

Coming from Ghana at a young age it took me a while to adjust to the change in lifestyle.  It intrigued me how distinct the way of life was compared to back home.

Socializing with friends and family were arranged in public houses rather than the regular family parties and gathering I was used to, which is why I have chosen to look into British public houses, their importance and the story behind them.

A pub or public house is a private house that is licensed to sell alcohol to the general public; it is a focal point of the community. They are the heart of England. Pubs are usually chosen close to home or work, the availability of beer, a place to smoke, participate in dart competitions, the availability of a pool or snooker table.
