Guest Room aims to spark collaborations. That’s why Manju Journal founder and creative director Richmond Orlando Mensah is teaming up with his longtime friend and photographer Daniel Kons. He is a Lagos/Accra-based fashion and fine art photographer whose body of work captures everyday contemporary African life. He has amassed a diverse portfolio including works featured in renowned publications such as Vogue, L’Officiel USA, Nataal, Essence, Ebony as well as fashion brands like Studio 189.

Richmond Orlando Mensah and Daniel Kons are choosing the theme ‘REBIRTH’ for this month’s Guest Room.
