My second trip to Kingston totally made sense. I got a better picture of the city, got to see a couple more neighborhoods, and took a bunch of pictures of course. In a way I have a love/hate relationship with Kingston, my mood there is up and down too … for example, my last day there sucked, I spent all day inside staring at the computer (Kingston is not a city where you just walk around and make friends with locals) – but than that night I hung out some serious gangsters, took pictures of guns and stuff, I can’t go into details here. But at the end of the night no one could take the smile off my face. (via Freshngood)

I find this song and video madly inspiring. It’s beautifully shot and contains stunning footage of Kingston – the message in the song is amazing as well. (via The Heatwave)

For the final outdoor scene Kartel was rolling deep with his crew Also, note the fans watching the shoot from the roof. There were literally hundreds of people who came to get a glimpse of Kartel. (via Dre Skull)

The single cover, a photograph of a bullet ahead of the wave, is a creation of Schlieren photography, a technique that allows the visualization of density changes, and therefore shock waves, in fluid flow. Schlieren techniques have been used in laboratory wind tunnels to visualize the supersonic flow of model aircraft, making airflow visible, or to view the reaction of FIRE on its environment.

Jamaica Project explores modern Jamaica through it’s dancehall and party scene. The result being a combination of purely text based work alongside some pretty sexy graphics depicting the dichotomy of the Jamaican woman’s place within society. It has been a means of understanding and coming to grips with modern Jamaican culture while connecting it with elements of the past that inspired me as a child.
