Footnotes

  • Literature:
    Jones, C., The Black House (Munich: Prestel, 2006), all four illustrated, unpaginated

    In 1973, Colin Jones was commissioned to produce illustrations for a Sunday Times article on the Harambee community project in Islington, London, titled 'On the Edge of the Ghetto'. Dubbed 'The Black House', the Harambee project provided a home for troubled black men, run by a charismatic Caribbean migrant called 'Brother' Herman Edwards. Jones's images captured the struggles encountered by this first generation of Afro-Caribbean youths born in Britain. He continued to photograph this volatile community for a further three years, and in 1977 his photographs were collected together in a controversial exhibition at The Photographers' Gallery, under the title The Black House.
