Kingston, 7 March 2020 – The Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, the Honourable Olivia Grange, has expressed sadness at the passing of the outstanding Jamaican photographer, Bryan Cummings.

Cummings, the Photo Editor for the Jamaica Observer newspaper, passed away last evening at the age of 56.

Minister Grange said:

“I wish to express condolences to the family and friends of Bryan Cummings who now mourn the passing of a truly outstanding photographer.

Brian was blessed with that eye that all great photographers possess.

His enduring legacy will be his work in sport where, through his photographs, he told the story of a glorious period in Jamaica sport, particularly track and field.

He was a well respected photographer and editor, a kind and personable man, and I want us to hold up his family and friends in our prayers at this time.”


Minister's charge

I remain hopeful because of the giftedness of the Jamaican people; their warmth and creativity; their dynamism and indomitable spirit that have resulted in excellence in all sectors.

It is by tapping into the gifts and awakening the spirit of the Jamaican people that we will, by God’s grace, re-group, re-engineer and re-open to a brighter future with Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport.

Olivia Grange
