PAST: A visual presentation of Barnor’s photographs taken in London throughout the 1960s, edited by Ferdinando Verderi, Creative Director of Vogue Italia, from Black models such as Erlin Ibreck and Marie Hallowi, to street observations of Pearly Kings and Covent Garden market traders.
Despite working as a photographer for more than six decades, Barnor’s work has only recently been in the spotlight. In 2007, the curator Nana Oforiatta-Ayim took an interest in his work and helped organise his first exhibition. ‘She was the first curator/writer to organise a show of my work and she is the first one who suggested I should do a book,’ Barnor said. An exhibition of his work, titled Mr Barnor’s independence diaries, took place at the Black Cultural Archives in Brixton, south London, later that year. In spring 2010, Barnor’s first US exhibition was presented by Autograph ABP
