12" × 16", edition of 10
Born in 1929 in Accra, James Barnor is today considered a pioneer of Ghanaian contemporary photography, with a career that spans six decades and covers a remarkable period in history. His portraits bridge continents and photographic genres to create transatlantic narratives marked by his passionate interest in people and cultures.
This iconic photograph was taken by the artist in the early 1970s, when Barnor had returned to Accra to open his new photography studio and the first colour processing laboratory in Ghana. It depicts one of his shop assistants, posing with a display of the Colenta machine that produced the first colour negatives taken and processed in the country.
This work is also available as a 20" × 24" edition.
