James Barnor

James Barnor’s first solo exhibition took place at the Black Cultural Archives, London, UK, in 2007, followed by a major show at Autograph ABP, London, in 2010. Recent exhibitions include ‘James Barnor: A Retrospective’ at Nubuke Foundation, Accra, Ghana, in 2019. In April, his work was screened at Piccadilly Circus, London, by the Serpentine and CIRCA. His retrospective, ‘Accra/London’, is on view at the Serpentine Gallery, London, from 19 May to 22 October.

As a major retrospective opens at Serpentine Galleries, the photographer speaks to Afua Hirsch about capturing the energy of Ghanaian independence in Accra and the swinging sixties in London
