Days and Nights in Kingston and Rio

Photographer Varun Baker shoots from the hip and gets the money shot: “I am interested in dancehall in general, and a controversial dancehall star called Vybz Kartel in particular. I am attracted to the natural power of sex and the man-made power of money. In Kingston and Rio, I walk the humble streets of Trench Town, I find ‘spent shells’ lying on the ground in a favela, and record the similar joys and dangers of love, fulfilment and disappointment across two cities and two continents.”
