Backpacks are a common method of carrying things here in Jamaica, like most places. However, less common is the fact that grown men carry bags like this. It is a strange contradiction, in a country in which maintaining the traditional markers of masculinity is paramount. I caught this bag as it was laying down while its owner, a burly construction worker, was hauling cement. I can’t see a construction worker in Canada or the US bringing this to work. How delightful it is.
