Spending a month with a Primatology team in Ghana allowed me to learn each Black and White Colobus by name, by their characteristics, demeanour and physiology. It changed my wildlife photography into portrait photography. Shooting in black and white brought out individual characteristics more to my liking and seemed to express the great dignity of these primates. Here, Krakatoa allows himself to sleep with only one eye closed.

Location: Boabeng, Brong Ahafo, Ghana.
