Black & white reggae pictures

Black and white photography is the purest form of expression to me. No freaky colours, just reducing the photo to the maximum. Photography and Reggae is my perfect personal combination. It is a mental ting. Be convinced of what you do and you will receive your reward one day.

With a little donation you can become a supporter of the project. That helps me to get all the pictures published in a book.

If you think you want to become the sponsor of the project just get in contact with me. Different forms of sponsorships are possible. Any help is appreciated to fulfill my dream. Jah bless.

Junior Kelly

Born: September 23, 1969

Junior Kelly was born Keith Morgan on September 23, 1969, the youngest of five children, and grew up in the Waltham Park area of Kingston, Jamaica. Kelly was part of a musical family. Both his father and grandfather played banjo, and his mother sang at their local church. Although the family was of limited means, Kelly later recalled that the family's deep love for one another kept them going through hard times. On his official website, Kelly explained that despite having frequently to do without, the family stayed happy "because we knew we had each other to lean on."

This changed, however, in 1983, when Kelly was 13 years old. That year Kelly's older brother Sylvester was shot to death in a dispute over money, almost before Kelly's eyes, and the youngster was later called upon to testify at the trial of his brother's killers. Sylvester had been the family's main breadwinner, and was someone Kelly had looked to as a role model. The family fell on even harder times after his death.

Sylvester had built a local following as a rapper/deejay working under the name of Jim Kelly. Within a few years of his brother's death, Kelly resolved to pick up where his brother left off, and became a deejay himself. Taking for his stage name a variation of his brother's name as a deejay, Kelly began his career playing concerts around Jamaica.
