In parallel with the exhibition James Barnor: Stories. Pictures from the Archive (1947-1987), presented in 2022 at the LUMA Foundation as part of the Rencontres d’Arles festival, the book offers a kaleidoscopic overview of the Ghanaian photographer’s oeuvre.
From Accra to London and back, from the end of the colonial era to the early 1980s, from studio portraits to press commissions, the reader gains an insight into the process behind Barnor’s best-known images while exploring more personal aspects of this exceptional archive. This exhibition is the first retrospective in France devoted to a photographer who continues, as he approaches the age of 93, to inspire generations of contemporary artists, and whose work is now included in the most prestigious international collections.
