Wednesday 14th September: Daniele Tamagni and James Barnor at October Gallery

The photographer who has inspired both Paul Smith and Solange with his discovery and documentary of the Sapeurs from the DRC has opened an exhibition of that seminal work in London.  Daniele Tamagni’s snapshots of both African and worldwide streetstyle are being shown alongside James Barnor’s historic portraits on similar themes.  James black and white portraits of London in the 1960’s and Ghana in the 1950’s perfectly balance with Daniele’s hyper-colour contemporary cultural commentary.
