Magnum Photos present Noises In The Blood: A Collaborative Portrait


Photographer Lua Ribeira and dancehall artist Dinah Larmond discuss creative collaboration.

Inspired by British contemporary dancehall ritual, Lua Ribeira collaborated with a group of British Jamaican women in Birmingham to create photographic portraits. Inspired by Caroline Cooper’s book Noises in the Blood: Orality, Gender, and the ‘Vulgar’ Body of Jamaican Popular Culture, the project questions the narrow Western perspective under whose lens dancehall is observed.

Hear Ribeira and collaborator, dancehall artist Dinah Larmond, discuss creative collaboration, and Dinah’s experience of British dance hall culture. The talk will be followed by a DJ set from Kemarr.

Doors open at 6.30PM, the discussion will start at 7PM. Cocktails provided by Absolut Vodka.
