I am Renate Wefers and I live in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. 

Traveling and getting to know other cultures has always fascinated me, but it was only in Africa that I discovered my love of photography.

From 2007 to 2012 I lived with my family in Ghana / West Africa.

There the incredibly cheerful and openminded people, the bright colors of the traditional clothes and the colorful fishing boats inspired me to take pictures.

Since then photography has become an integral part of my life and my favorite hobby.
