JAMAIKA is a photography documentary book that tells the story of an often racialised and marginalised community of around 700 people - Bairro da Jamaica, located in Seixal, Portugal - and their fight for dignified housing.
After making a short documentary film with the community - supported by an emergency grant from the National Geographic Society - I have spent the past two and a half years self-funding this documentary story.
Now, once the photography work is finished, I believe that to publish these community story in a book format is the right next step!
