Photos: James Barnor 'Ever Young'

Photos from one of the greats of African photography.

Legendary Ghanaian photographer James Barnor has shot gorgeous fashion spreads, as well as remarkable scenes from life on the continent and abroad for over 50 years. While National Geographic snapped photos of lions, Barnor captured an amazing array of images that are crucial to a broader understanding of Ghana's past and present. For the first time in Ghana, a retrospective of his work will be on exhibit at Accra's Silverbird Lounge June 30-July 2. For more info on the event go here. To view more of Barnor's photos go here.
