These photographs reflect my travels and interest in
the people of Jamaica, their culture and economic, individual and collective identities.
These photographic observations find that they share a strong sense of pride,
of place and of interreliance as a community. Jamaicans have great potential,
hope and soulful spirit despite the hardship and challenges they confront as an independent
people in this fast changing and competitive economic world.
Time is factor and the titles indicate the self aware perspective of a Jamaican's
sense of purposeful function. The images reveal real lives within environments
where values of the activities are sensed, occurring at times
when participants spirits find their way to film.
As they say, "To be useful is important.
To be helpful, natural.
Seeking to nurture the spirit of the heart and the mind,
a resplendent struggle"
