In 1975 and 1978 Colin Jones worked in Jamaica. On both occasions commission for feature magazine articles took him there. His photos of the indigenous Ganja culture provide a fascinating portrait of the Rasta community at a time of unrest and political instability in the country. In the past the Jamaica photos haven't received the same attention as Colin Jones's best know photography of the industrial north of England or the Black House series.
