Each term at LCF, we have to produce, art direct, and style a shoot – then we get graded on our final pictures and the sketchbook that goes along with it. After recently returning from a holiday in Jamaica, I decided to research into the country and found myself really inspired – I ended up basing my project on/ creating an editorial inspired by the country. Damian Marley’s ‘Welcome to Jamrock’ lyrics got me really thinking about the depths of the country that tourists and holiday makers never really see. When one thinks of Jamaica, the general consensus is to see sun, beautiful beaches, marijuana and red stripe. But sadly, Jamaica is a country that is in a lot of trouble – Violence, prostitution, and a corrupt government are just a few of the issues Jamaica is facing. So i decided to write a hench essay on the corruption of the government (don’t worry i wont bore you with it!) and produce an editorial inspired by my research. I worked alongside a fantastic team, and am pleased with the outcome.
