Daniele Tamagni & James Barnor exhibit at October Gallery

We’ve long been fans of legendary Ghanaian photography, James Barnor who recently mesmerised an audience giving presentation on his vast and ground-breaking careers as a photographer during Diversity Matters Awareness Week in April!

And award-winning Italian photographer Daniele Tamagni is no stranger to us either having hosted a “Gentlemen of Bacongo” book signing for him during UAL ACS Film and Literature Festival last year.

So it’s with delight to receive news of confirmed for an exhibition paying homage to both photographers who happen to be friends!

We caught up with Daniele during our trip to Milan this summer to share his excitement about the exhibition held at October Gallery opening with a Private View in London on the 7th September.

“It’s really important because for the first time my work is exhibiting with James Barnor. It was a dream both of us wanted because we admire each other. The exhibition will show more the fashion side James’ work that illustrates the post-colonial period of Ghana, but also some fashion shots of Afro-Caribbean community in London.”

On what we can expect from the exhibition, Daniele added; “It’ll be a mixture of black and white, colour photography, and my recent work. It’s a bridge of different cultures and history, I would say. Different generations that show similarities and changes in our society.”
