Interview with James Barnor

"I happened to be involved in the independence of Ghana (…) Through this, I saw the world afresh."

Director(s)  Victor & Simon
Participant(s)  James Barnor

For his first retrospective in France, James Barnor has assembled, with LUMA, a completely original portfolio of his favourite images. These were selected by re-examining his vast archive of 30,000 negatives and several hundred prints and period documents. Barnor's images bring to life the utopia of a shared world, one that transcends the nationalisms of the second half of the 20th century. 
In this interview, James Barnor looks back on his career which is now inspiring a new generation of artists who are fighting to represent blackness around the world.
