Kingston, 8 May 2020 – The Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, the Honourable Olivia Grange, has paid tribute to late photojournalist Michael Gordon who passed away on Wednesday.

Minister’s Statement
"I knew Michael from the 1970s and we have always worked very well together. He was a man who paid attention to detail and really added value to the role of photographers in the newsroom.

He was meticulous and determined. Michael never allowed anyone or anything to get in the way of his perfect shot. His numerous awards over the years are testament to the high quality of his work.

His work at the Jamaica Information Service and the Jamaica Observer set a high standard for other photographers. His photos spoke to you and often told the entire story.

Michael Gordon will be sorely missed. I wish to extend condolences to his immediate family and the Jamaica Observer family."



We place people at the heart of everything we do.

We believe that culture is the great equaliser and transformer that makes ordinary men and women great.

We believe that gender equality is essential in a modern society.

We believe that an entertained person is a happy person and happy persons make happy societies.

We believe that physical activity enhances lives and sport is the medicine that heals and corrects.

Olivia Grange
