I wanted to post this series of photographs by British photographer Caroll Taveros already a while ago but somehow I forgot while preparing the relaunch.

The people over at Burden had originally spotted it on the website of GOOD magazine:

In 2008 and in 2009, the photographer Caroll Taveras ventured to Jamaica on two assignments, one for Culture and Travel and another for The Guardian. For the former, her work focused on the development of downtown Kingston, specifically as related to a youth art and cultural center known as the Rock Tower and the distinction between the areas of the city that are considered safe (uptown) and unsafe (downtown).

We looked at the pictures with special interest as they feature Melinda Brown and Sand amongst others – both people who supported Gabe during his »Rocktower« months.

Find the whole series on Caroll Taveras’ website.
