Making Jamaica: Photography from the 1890s

A collection of more than 70 historical photographs go on display later this month  in a free exhibition at Rivington Place in London. ‘Making Jamaica’ explores how a new image of Jamaica was created through photography in the 1890s. The images are being exhibited in London for the first time, and are drawn from the Caribbean Photo Archive. If you’re in London and get to the exhibition, please report back! It looks well worth visiting.
