Ghanaian Photographer James Barnor makes Vogue Italia's April Issue

James Barnor’s latest collection makes the April Issue of Vogue Italia. 

Gracing the cover is a recreation of his 1967 Piccadilly Circus photo, starring British Fashion Model and founder of The Gurls Talk Podcast, Adwoa Aboah.

The Serpentine Gallery in London is dedicating a retrospective show to the 91-year-old photojournalist and lifestyle photographer this spring. 

 

The show highlights his work from 1960s London to be featured on the Piccadilly Lights mega screen every day, throughout April, at 20:21 GMT as part of the @circa.art initiative.

Barnor’s career has spanned over 70 years, capturing Ghana’s independence, London’s burgeoning African diaspora, portrait photography and the music scene.

 

James Barnor: London/Accra – A Retrospective curated by Lizzie Carey-Thomas, Chief Curator, Serpentine and Awa Konaté, Assistant Curator.  

Portraits for the Future curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Artistic Director, Serpentine, Kostas Stasinopoulos, Assistant Curator, Serpentine, and Bianca Manu, Curatorial Associate.
