James Barnor: The 91-year-old's photos bringing Ghana to life

The 91-year-old’s photos bringing Ghana to life

James Barnor started taking photos in the 1940s when he was given a Baby Brownie camera.

The Ghanaian-British photographer became Ghana’s first international press photographer around the time of independence. Now aged 91, he still takes photos for his own enjoyment, having taken a course on digital photography at his retirement home.

His work of 75 years paints a vivid picture of the social history of both Ghana and Britain, as he lived in both countries for many years.

It has now been brought together in an exhibition at the Serpentine Gallery in London.
