In 1967, James Barnor photographed BBC Africa Service presenter Mike Eghan standing against the backdrop of Piccadilly Circus’ neon signs.
Over half a decade later, CIRCA and Serpentine invited Ferdinando Verderi, Creative Director of Vogue Italia, to revisit this iconic setting with fashion model Adwoa Aboah and photograph James Barnor’s first ever cover for Vogue:
“The biggest contribution I could provide to James’ career was allowing the new generation to understand James’ relevance to the history of photography by creating something which wasn’t just new but it was sort of an interpretation of his past.”
- Ferdinando Verderi

70% of profits will be distributed as part of the #CIRCAECONOMY which arises in response to our post-Covid world, recognising that there will be lasting damage inflicted upon the UK's cultural community. For April, we are proud to make a special donation in support of The James Barnor Foundation.
