David House, histoire d'une photo iconique!

Thibault Ehrengardt raconte la petite histoire derrière la photo la plus iconique jamais parue dans Natty Dread, celle de Capleton entouré des membres de la David House, à Papine, Kingston, en 1999. Un premier voyage en Jamaïque, une première rencontre et une photo qui a partiellement contribué à changer la vie de celui qui l'a prise !

Actuellement visible en format papier peint (grandeur nature !) à l'expo Jamaica Insula qui vient de rouvrir ses portes à LE 106 (Rouen).

In 1999, I went to Jamaica for the first time and I met Capleton in David House, Papine. It was a life-changing moment, and Jamaica offered me more than I had expected (although I had expected a lot!). I took this picture of Capleton and the members of the David House in a few seconds, and it has become the most iconic picture ever published in the magazine. It is today part of our Jamaica Insula exhibition, currently displayed in Rouen (France), at Le 106. We made a wallpaper out of it!
