I had the privilege of being apart of the launch, of noted photographer Ray Chen’s most recent book, “Jamaica – My 50 years in Photographs”.
The book is filled with beautiful images of Jamaican culture and shows the growth of the country, all documented by Mr. Chen. This is a final passion project for him, as he moved from Canada and relinquished his career as a successful commercial photographer, publishing over 10 books about Jamaica throughout the years.
I met Mr Chen about 4 years ago and he has become a mentor and close friend. He often refers to me as a daughter and star on the rise :o)
The book officially launched on March 18th at the Grog Shoppe at Devon House. On Wednesday, March 17th, Mr. Chen had the pleasure of presenting his book to Governor-General, the Most Honourable Sir Patrick Linton Allen at Kings House. Alongside Mr. Chen was the love of his life, wife Lyn Chen. It was an over joyous moment for both of them.
