James Town, 54 lyndurst rd, Kingston - Jamaica

I did this entry as a dedication to the innocent people who died recently in Kingston, Jamaica as a result of the misdeeds of those who put these innocent lives in harms way. The gun battles that took place between the army and the gunmen placed the lives of "human" beings between the bullets, persons who had nothing to do with this political fire fight. Simple people who just wanted to get up everyday and provide for their family. These photos I present to you exemplify the humanity that exist within these people and the everyday dignity they project. I can call them poor, oppressed or disenfranchised but at the end of the day people are people and offering anyone a little respect and regard goes a long way. Enjoy
