The studio portraiture of Ghanaian photographer-meets-artist Philip Kwame Apagya are like scenes from a West African, Faux Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.

The subjects of his portraits are presented before brightly coloured, painted 2-D backdrops featuring the interiors of chronic consumers. They appear inside living rooms crammed with furnishings, expensive electronics and hi-fi equipment, mobile phones and desktop computers – but the real thinker in this virtual reality is that, for these subjects, does it all represent a material reality beyond the subjects' means?
