Discover Gold Mining in Ghana with Illustrator George Butler.
British Artist George Butler illustrates stories of ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances in places such as Afghanistan, Syria and West Africa. His reportage illustrations have been featured in many publications from The Guardian, The Times and Evening Standard. In 2010, he successfully persuaded Anglo Shanti mining company in Ghana to document life around its gold mine.
In George’s view drawing offers “a trusted alternative to photography and film.The sense that someone was actually experiencing a situation first hand, offers a fresh and proven solution to capturing a viewer’s attention,” he says in Drawing the News.
