If you want to get a real feel of Jamaica's dancehall community beyond the surface glamour and hedonism, then you ought to know about British photographer Ivar Wigan. He spent two years living within those communities and puts on a show here that's part documentation, part celebration; intimate, stark and honest photography of the youthful energy, sexual freedom and adversity facing his friends. The images on display shift from capturing disused sound systems, to gang leaders, to guys smoking spliffs and funerals. There's the domestic, the decadent and the bizarre with a subtle beauty coming from the raw aesthetic of film. Plenty of these communities are pretty inaccessible too, so this is a pretty unique show.
