In June 2012, Secunda travelled to Jamaica to mould bullet holes made by the Jamaican police and army in the most heavily gang controlled and drug-affected areas of Kingston. Jamaica’s ‘Drug Wars’ of 2010 were the subject of this body of work. During this time it was reported that 73 people were killed – a figure now believed to be closer to 200.
With unprecedented access to cartel heads, gang leaders and local hit men, Secunda recorded the recent violence in his art and made a short film about the experience.
Secunda’s Jamaica project can be seen in this extraordinary short film.
