In correlation with the recent Life according to James Barnor exhibition opening, John Fleetwood director of Photo: has been invited to lead a walkabout on the Ghanaian photographer’s work which aims to go beyond a rhetorical categorisation of 40 years of photography and draws inspiration in particular from James Barnor’s final photographs in Ghana in the 1970s and 1980s.

James Barnor (born 1929) is a Ghanaian photographer who has been based in London, UK, since the 1990s. His career spans six decades, and although for much of that period his work was not widely known it has latterly been discovered by new audiences.
