Guardian: Jamaican dancehall culture in the 80s

posted on August 25th, 2008 by in Photography

A few weeks ago, The Guardian had a nice little series of photographs of Jamaica´s dancehall culture in the 80s:

Writer and photographer Beth Lesser travelled in Jamaica throughout the 80s interviewing musicians for her magazine. Along the way she captured the scene at the time, exploring the period between the death of Bob Marley and ragga’s conquest of America.
