About the work
James Barnor
Ghanaian, b. 1929
Follow

Over the span of six decades, British-Ghanaian photographer James Barnor opened a studio in Accra, Ghana, where he took portraits of community members and public figures; worked as a photojournalist documenting historic sociopolitical changes in London and Accra; and was regularly commissioned to shoot for Drum magazine, a prominent anti-apartheid journal. While Barnor is known for his striking black-and-white portraits and playful editorials, he frequently shot in color. In 1970, he opened the first color-processing lab in Ghana. In recent years, the photographer has garnered increased recognition for his dynamic documentation of African diasporic people and his contributions to photography, both at home and abroad. Barnor is featured in The Artsy Vanguard 2020.
