Well the photo is real. But fake as in this girl ain’t Jamaican, she’s Trinidadian. And I know that being that this is South Florida, you’ve seen this photo at some point or another . I actually have a reggae album from the 70’s that uses this photo on the cover…but originally, the photo was for a campaign to promote tourism in Jamaica. It did that and more – the photo became iconic. Click here to read about the girl and where shes at now some 30 or so years later since taking the photo.
