'Noises in the blood is a photographic work, which title I have borrowed from Dr in Cultural Studies Carolyn Cooper. Inspired by the Jamaican dancehall ritual, that I started to produce the series in the beginning of 2015 in the British city of Birmingham. The work reflects on the representation of a different cultural expression, embracing the impossibility of fully understanding it, and dealing with the limitations of photographic representation in this pursuit. The result would be a collection of photographs fruit of a cultural collision and collaborative process between myself and a group of British Jamaican women.'   More
