Back in 1946, in Accra, the capital of Ghana, an adolescent James Barnor was teaching basket-weaving in a missionary school when his headmaster fatefully gifted him a Kodak Brownie 127. Barnor’s plans to become a policeman were hastily abandoned, as the plastic digicam set him on his path to becoming a renowned photographer. Little did he know, the future photographer would go on to cover a remarkable period in history; snapshotting the socio-cultural transition across two continents and two countries by focusing on two cities – post-independence Accra and post-war London.
