“Call to Glory” is a poetic photo-essay that deals with the fragile line between life and death, how people handle sorrow and how they mourn.
In Ghana, when a person dies, there is a call for glory. A coffin is made in a shape of what that person loved the most. Friends and neighbors are invited to share food, mourn, pray and dance. It’s a colorful and loud affair where the guests get drunk, bodies are stolen, coffins are shaped as chicken, tigers or fish and the death is celebrated with laughter.
