On August 19, the reggae community remembered venerable roots-reggae singer Joseph 'Culture' Hill on the fifth anniversary of his death. Among the admirers paying homage was American photographer Brian Jahn.Jahn posted photos of Hill on his photo blog (blessingsallover.wordpress.com), complemented by a tribute from Canadian writer Jim Dooley. Hill is just one of thousands of subjects Jahn has shot in more than 20 years of covering the reggae beat.
Almost 150 of those photos have been exhibited on the blog since it was launched in January 2010. Because his catalogue is vast (more than 30,000 mainly black-and-white images), Jahn said regular updates are inevitable.
