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! By supporting this crowdfunding campaign, you are not only helping with the printing and publishing of the book, but you are getting limited editions that won´t be available elsewhere. This is a self-published book edition and your support goes 100% to fund the production of the book. Which includes: printing, binding costs, design, texts, translation and editing costs.
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.
