A shop assistant at the Sick-Hagemeyer store
Employed by Sick-Hagemeyer to install the first Agfa-Gevaert colour developing laboratory in Ghana, James Barnor defies climatic constraints and techniques. During this period, he didn’t work as a portraitist, but still seized the occasional opportunity to prove his technique worked.
