Renowned Ghanaian photographer James Barnor is set to celebrate his 95th birthday on June 6, 2024. To commemorate this milestone, he unveiled the James Barnor 95 Festival at a press soiree held at the Ghana Club in Accra on May 31.

The festival, which celebrates cultural heritage and artistic innovation, aims to not only honor the iconic photographer but also have a lasting impact on the arts and cultural scene in Ghana. Activities planned for the festival include exhibitions, screenings, and concerts with the legendary actor and stand-up comedian Fritz Baffour in attendance.

Born in Ghana in 1929, James Barnor gained recognition for his Ever Young studio in Accra, where he captured the essence of the country at the time of its independence. He was the first photographer-journalist to collaborate with The Daily Graphic, a publication by London’s Daily Mirror Group.
