" Growing up during the 1970’s my school friends
and I in Wandsworth, London became immersed
in the improvised DIY culture of West Indian sound
systems, clashes or sessions. The project ‘Favourite
Session’ started as a series of documentary
photographs and recorded interviews exploring
historical developments within sound system West
Indian music culture. Utilising the artists and their
record collections, dub plates, DIY amp cases
and oral histories to create a photographic ‘portrait’
of favourite sessions past and present.”

Gary Waite, 2010
