Alliance Française:  The best work of Ghanaian photographer James Barnor

The French Institute of South Africa and the Alliance Française of Johannesburg, in partnership with Galerie Clémentine de la Feronnière, are pleased to present some of the best work of Ghanaian photographer James Barnor at the Gerard Sekoto Gallery. Wednesday 11 of September

 The best work of Ghanaian photographer James Barnor at the Gerard Sekoto Gallery has previously been presented at the Rencontres de Bamako in 2017, and at the Museum of Photography in Saint-Louis, Senegal, in 2018.

Life According to James Barnor offers an interdisciplinary view of the pivotal themes of his work, chosen by the curator Clémentine de la Feronnière.

The exhibition aims to go beyond a rhetorical categorization of 40 years of photography and draws inspiration in particular from James Barnor’s final photographs in Ghana in the 1970s and 1980s. Relatively unexplored until now, they have emerged as symbols of the accomplishment of his work, characterized by a lightness, a freedom and a "joie de vivre" that are shared by the subjects in Barnor's photographs.

Entrance is free, and the event starts at 18:00
