I have accepted two invitations to exhibit photographs from the world renowned Bonita Jamaica Photo Collection in New York. The first invitation is from Consul General Alsion Wilson, Jamaica Consulate General, New York. And the second is from VP Records, organizers of The Grace Jamaican Jerk Festival, Queens, NY. The invitations are well timed, to commemorate Jamaica’s 60th independence (August 6, 1962 to August 6, 2022).

 

The exhibit is titled ‘Escape To Jamaica’ and will feature several large format canvas prints that were carefully and deliberately selected to take photo art lovers on a beautiful journey to Jamaica. And, I hope, will inspire them to take a trip to Jamaica.

 

The exhibit at the Jamaican Consulate in New York will be held in collaboration with Jamaican photographer Mr. David Muir, who will exhibit works from his new book titled ‘Pieces Of Jamaica’. Mr. Muir is a very accomplished photographer with an amazing artistic eye. We will both be present at a reception at the Jamaican Consulate in New York on Friday July 29, 2022, under the auspices of Consul General Alsion Wilson. This will also be a book signing event for Mr. Muir.

 

On Sunday July 31, 2022, the Escape To Jamaica exhibit will be on show at the Grace Jamaican Jerk Festival, Queens, NY. If you are able to do so, please attend this event so that you can view the exhibit.
