Ce portrait représente la fille du logeur de James Barnor, vers 1972, à Accra au Ghana. On retrouve plusieurs portraits de cette jeune femme dans l’oeuvre du photographe et dans le livre James Barnor, Ever Young (ed. Autograph ABP-Maison CF, 2015, p. 155 et 159).
Au début de l’année 1970, James Barnor, qui vient de passer dix ans au Royaume-Uni, rentre au Ghana pour ouvrir le premier laboratoire de développement couleur du pays pour le compte d’Agfa-Gevaert. C’est sans doute l’apogée de sa pratique de la couleur. Ce portrait figure dans l’ouvrage à paraître The Roadmaker publié par Maison CF et RRB Photobooks et sera présentée dans l’exposition consacrée à James Barnor qui aura lieu à partir du 18 mai 2021 au Bristol Museum & Art Gallery dans le cadre de la première édition du Bristol Photo Festival.
Dans cette unique édition limitée à 5 exemplaires, on trouve un tirage qui fait partie de la collection de l’Architecte Sir David Adjaye (acquisition 2020), ainsi qu’un autre dans les collections du Detroit Institute of Art Museum DIA (acquisition 2020).

This portrait depicts the daughter of James Barnor's landlord, circa 1972, in Accra, Ghana. There are several portraits of this young woman in the photographer's work and in the book James Barnor, Ever Young (ed. Autograph ABP-Maison CF, 2015, pp. 155 and 159). In early 1970, James Barnor, who has just spent ten years in the United Kingdom, returns to Ghana to open the country's first color development lab for Agfa-Gevaert. This is undoubtedly the peak of his color practice.
This portrait is featured in the forthcoming book The Roadmaker published by Maison CF and RRB Photobooks and will be featured in the exhibition dedicated to James Barnor that will take place from May 18, 2021 at the Bristol Museum & Art Gallery as part of the first Bristol Photo Festival.
In this unique limited edition of 5 prints, there is one print in the collection of Architect Sir David Adjaye (2020 acquisition), as well as another in the collections of the Detroit Institute of Art Museum DIA (2020 acquisition).
