Fine art photographer, David I. Muir will launch his highly anticipated coffee table book, “Pieces of Jamaica: The Real Rock Edition,” on Friday, September 14, 2012 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Sheraton Suites Plantation, 311 N. University Drive, Plantation, FL 33324.

In “Pieces of Jamaica” Muir captures and celebrates the essence of the true Jamaican spirit in stunning photographs accompanied by stirring captions by writer, poet and journalist, Sonia Morgan. The result: a formidable keepsake for Jamaicans at home and in the Diaspora, and lovers of Jamaica around the world.

From the obscure handcart man in “Licensed to Drive” and the behind-the-scenes look at the fastest man in the world, Usain Bolt, to the scenic market life in “Painted Market” and the historic Devon House in “Reflections,” Muir takes us on a photographic journey across Jamaica highlighting the people and culture in a fresh, authentic way for book lovers everywhere. Much like his photo exhibits, Muir sidesteps the typical and focuses on the everyday aspects of Jamaican life and the spirit and ingenuity of the people, that make the country diverse, beautiful and something to be admired.

The book launch and photo exhibit of selected pieces is expected to attract hundreds from the Diaspora and friends of Jamaica and will feature a reading of selected poems on the pieces by Morgan, a cultural presentation of Kumina from Queen Maxine and a performance by Jazz saxophonist Randy Corinthian. The author will also be signing copies of the book. Selected numbered and framed printsfrom the book will be available for purchase.

The book has already received numerous accolades from top experts of Jamaican art and culture including Foreword writer, accomplished British Jamaican author Leone Ross, Karl ‘Jerry’ Craig, Dr. Susan Lycett Davis and Dr. Garth A. Rose. “Pieces of Jamaica” also received praises from renowned artists such as Grammy winner Sean Paul and Rory of Stone Love.
Published by Words2Print Media Group, “Pieces of Jamaica: The Real Rock Edition” will intrigue, inspire nostalgia and show Jamaica unedited and uncut to be enjoyed by Jamaicans living at home or abroad and friends and lovers of Jamaica and its culture.

All are invited to come and join the celebration of this truly artistic and authentic representation of Jamaica.
