We’ve been following Blend contributing photographer, Sam Diephuis, over the last couple of years and what a journey he has been on! After 3 trips and five months of solid shooting, Diephuis has published PULSE, a Jamaica/Reggae book. Pulse started as a personal project aimed toward the exploration of the region’s music but turned out to be much more layered, looking at the way reggae interweaves with the politics, culture and identity of Jamaica. The cover and a few spreads are shown here, but you should definitely head over to to see more of the book. Fantastic work.

  1. Great work…really gives me a sense of the culture!
