This September, October Gallery will display photographic works by pioneering Ghanaian photographer James Barnor and Italian photographer, Daniele Tamagni.

This will the first time that the two photographers known for their African style photography will exhibit at the gallery.

Featuring Barnor's analogue photographs of London's growing multicultural metropolis during the 'swinging 60s' and Ghana in the 50s, along with new works by Tamagni of striking fashion sub cultures throughout contemporary Africa, this exhibition follows the launch last year of the publication: 'Ever Young' by James Barnor and this year's, 'Fashion Tribes' by Daniele Tamagni.

Daniele Tamagni, an Italian photographer, trained as an art historian before travelling worldwide to document colourful fashion subcultures.

Shooting style in locations outside of the presumed fashion contexts such Brazzaville, Johannesburg, Nairobi and Dakar, Tamagni seeks and finds individualistic identity.

In 2007 he won the Canon Young Photographer Award with a project about the Congolese dandies, Sapeurs of Brazzaville and in 2010 won the ICP, Infinity Award, fashion category.

Tamagni's subjects are reflective of James Barnor's models of the 60s with fashion aiding their nonchalant confidence.
