Alessandro Zuek Simonetti: Small Kings

In the current edition of his Ghetto Palms column, Eddie Stats not only leaks a nice Max Glazer remix of Rihanna’s »What’s my name« featuring Vybz Kartel and Ricky Blaze but also made me aware of a book which would have probably made it on my Top 5 Reggae books for Christmas list had I known about it when I wrote it down – Alessandro Zuek Simonetti’s »Small Kings«:

Small Kings is a selection of black and white images taken at Passa Passa, one of the most famous street parties in Jamaica, a couple of months before the conflicts which brought the ghetto of Tivoli Gardens on the fist pages of newspapers all over the world. The book includes a text by Anicee Gaddis. (via Automatic Books)

The 72-pages book can be ordered directly via the publishing house for 10 Euros.
