Beth Lesser, along with her husband David Kingston, started out in 1980 with a ‘fanzine’ devoted to Augustus Pablo and his Rockers International collective, a venture that morphed, in 1982, into Reggae Quarterly Magazine, the first international reggae publication to focus on dancehall style music. Ms Lesser started taking pictures for the magazine to accompany the articles, photographs that have now appeared in four of her own books on reggae, many LP and CD covers as well as in publications around the world. Ms. Lesser resides in Toronto, Canada. She and David Kingston were married at a Youth Promotion dance in Sugar Minott’s yard, Kingston Jamaica in 1986.
