Reggae Nighthawks

PHOTO DESCRIPTION
When there is no cinema, there still is pool and Bob Marley.
In countries where no one has yet stood straight, Bob Marley is a softer version of the Che, more appropriate to the gentle nature of the nivans.

Reggae hits big in the islands : the tune I was hearing everywhere was Alpha Blondy's "cocody rock".

Yeah! Greetings in the name of His Imperial Majesty, Emperor Haile Selassie, Jah Rastafari, who liveth and reigneth I'n'I itinually ever fearful, ever sure. They say experience teacheth wisdom, but there's a Natural Mystic blowing through the air!

-Bob Marley before "Natural Mystic"

Stunning image man!

 Hopper in Vanatu... Simply superb, Luko, one of your most searing shots in a while. Iconic Mount Rushmore persence of the fellow on the right and then the faceless Markey T-short on the left, the whole bathed in Hopperish alienation.
Brilliant capture. Fav for me too.

ps. One can easily see what a PERSONAL project this is for you, and you are easily a match for the occasion.

Just a riveting photo, man.  The loss of that guy's face, replaced by the Third-World idol on his shirt, the follow through with the pool cue, the liquor signs from around the world, the glow of the flourescent light on the dark surfaces (faces and furniture) . . . it's just out of this world.
