Photographer/author Kenneth Ray Jackson tells a story of a memorable vacation to Jamaica (and other places) in pictures. With clear, solid angles on buildings and structures, Jackson’s book of pictures are professional grade photography. Some time exposures are given to give those who browse through Memories of Yesterday an idea of the heady tropic atmosphere that the author undoubtedly worships. There are candid shots of friends, family, and interesting people the author has found in his travels.
There are some places on God’s earth that are so beautiful as to deserve a book of pictures from its visitors. Jamaica, in the Greater Antilles on the Caribbean, is one of them. The island, its climate, its clean surroundings, and the people of Jamaica lend themselves easily to great pictures. Jackson’s work is a journeyman effort – perhaps to better present an earthiness to the place and the occasion in which that place has been recorded by the camera.
Wonderfully free from bizarre experimentations of “artsy” photographers, Jackson professes no illusions with his work. It is the magic of Jamaica that stars in this book. Readers are treated to the calm, easygoing life of islanders, of the camaraderie of strangers on peace-loving communities which Jamaican society is famous for. Kenneth Jackson has captured the total spirit with his lens.
