Le magazine Drum envoie James Barnor photographier Mike Eghan, le présentateur du service Afrique de la BBC à Londres en 1967. Un portrait similaire de Mike Eghan a été utilisé pour la couverture du catalogue d’exposition Another London, International Photographers Capture City Life 1930-1980 publié en 2012 à l’occasion d’une exposition qui s’est déroulée à Tate Britain (cur. Simon Baker, 27 juillet-16 septembre 2012). Dans le catalogue d’exposition, Ben Gidley et Mick Gidley écrivent à ce sujet : « His dynamic depiction of the popular Ghanaian broadcaster Mike Eghan at Piccadilly Circus captures the exuberance, familiar to any new arrival, of having the city literally and metaphorically at one’s feet. (1) » On retrouve aussi deux portraits de Mike Eghan dans le livre James Barnor, Ever Young. À propos de la séance de prise de vue, James Barnor se souvient : « Nous nous sommes d’abord retrouvés dans les studios, mais très vite il était évident que les locaux étaient trop exigus pour sa personne et qu’il fallait qu’on sorte : ‘Ça ne suffit pas, allons dans le centre !’ Nous avons fini la soirée à Trafalgar Square et Piccadilly Circus, je l’ai photographié pendant ce qui m’a paru être des heures. (2) »
Ce même portrait de Mike Eghan sera exposé prochainement à la Serpentine Gallery de Londres (19 mai-22 octobre 2021) dans le cadre d’une exposition majeure pour l’artiste, James Barnor : Accra/London, A Retrospective. La Serpentine Gallery et CIRCA ont de leur côté demandé à Ferdinando Verderi, directeur de la création de Vogue Italie, de contribuer à la rétrospective de James Barnor en interprétant le passé de l’artiste. Dans cette optique, Verderi a créé une couverture spéciale pour le numéro d'avril de Vogue Italie, en demandant à James Barnor de revisiter l’emplacement exact de cette image emblématique de Mike Eghan. 50 ans plus tard, la séance de shooting de la couverture du numéro d’avril a été élaborée à distance, James Barnor photographiant depuis sa maison londonienne sur Zoom, Verderi se trouvant à Los Angeles et le mannequin britannique Adwoa Aboah à Piccadilly Circus.

Drum magazine sent James Barnor to photograph Mike Eghan, the presenter of the BBC's Africa Service in London in 1967. A similar portrait of Mike Eghan was used for the cover OF the exhibition catalog Another London, International Photographers Capture City Life 1930-1980 published in 2012 for an exhibition held at Tate Britain (curated by Simon Baker, 27 July-16 September 2012). In the exhibition catalogue, Ben Gidley and Mick Gidley state: "His dynamic depiction of the popular Ghanaian broadcaster Mike Eghan at Piccadilly Circus captures the exuberance, familiar to any new arrival, of having the city literally and metaphorically at one's feet." There are also two portraits of Mike Eghan in the book James Barnor, Ever Young (ed. Autograph ABP-Maison CF, 2015, pp. 112-113). About the shoot, James Barnor recalls, "We met in the studios at first, but soon it was clear that the space was too small for his personality and we had to get out: 'That's not enough, let's go downtown!' We ended the evening in Trafalgar Square and Piccadilly Circus, I photographed him for what seemed like hours."
This portrait of Mike Eghan will soon be on view at the Serpentine Gallery in London (May 19-October 22, 2021) in a major exhibition for the artist, James Barnor: Accra/London, A Retrospective. The Serpentine Gallery and CIRCA have in turn asked Ferdinando Verderi, Creative Director of Vogue Italy, to contribute to the James Barnor retrospective by interpreting the artist's past. With this in mind, Verderi created a special cover for the April issue of Vogue Italia, asking James Barnor to revisit the exact location of this iconic image of Mike Eghan. 50 years later, the shoot for the April issue cover was developed remotely, with James Barnor photographing from his London home on Zoom, Verderi being in Los Angeles, and British model Adwoa Aboah in Piccadilly Circus.
