James Barnor at V&A's 'Africa Fashion'

Spanning iconic mid-20th century to contemporary creatives through photographs, textiles, music and the visual arts, Africa Fashion explores the vitality and global impact of a fashion scene as dynamic and varied as the continent itself.


In Capturing Change section, it focuses on the portrait photography of the mid-late 20th century at the point of decolonisation, capturing the mood of nations on the rink of self-rule. The stylish colour portraits of James Barnor on view as part of the group exhibition document the modernity, cosmopolitanism and fashion consciousness of individuals. The exhibition continues until 16 April 2023.
