I wanted to do a day in the life type of series for our engagement photos considering we don’t really frolick in the sand at the beach or we dont have elaborate set ups for stylized photoshoots etc. We’re homebodies. We love our daughter, and we love each other. I wanted to just show how we are on a usual Saturday morning.
DOCUMENTARY: ‘Ever Young’ - James Barnor
Narrated by the photographer himself and accompanied by a range of his work - from studio portraits in Accra and his documentation of Ghanain boxing champion Roy Ankrah’s personal life, to his work for DRUM Magazine shooting fashion photography in London, England, this short but intimate documentary details the birth and life of Barnor’s ‘Ever Young’ photo studio, situated in a pivotal area of Ghana’s capital city during a time when Ghana’s anti-colonial socio-polotical consciousness was rising, and his move from his country of birth to the United Kingdom.
"I had wanted to do a lot of things like being a farmer, being a teacher - so many things, but I don’t regret doing photography." - James Barnor.
