One People, One Nation, One Destiny
Jamain Gordon's series One People, One Nation, One Destiny is a body of work to raise awareness of his home country of Guyana. Not a lot of people have heard of Guyana, so with this work, his aim is to share his birthplace through photography in the hope that people can appreciate and pass on the knowledge of a place and a culture that is new to them. Each of the subjects photographed had a close connection with Gordon's late Grandmother and so meeting and photographing the sitters had a particular significance to him. Many of the people that Gordon met on his trip back to Guyana have also handwritten a message to share first-hand knowledge of the people and culture of Guyana. Gordon's photographs are an honest documentation of the Guyanese people which he wishes to share with my newfound friends and family. The series of work has been made into a book that incorporates Gordon's photographs alongside hand written letters by his subjects.
