Belong is a look at how art, music and culture survive in places that much of the world only associates with war, poverty and civil strife -- like the Bob Marley cover band in Beirut or the architect / artist in Tel Aviv who wanted to incorporate the idea of destruction into new buildings. Over the years, Jennifer Morton and her cameramen have been dragged out of a club by riot police in Milan, tracked down and questioned in Belfast, witnessed spirit possession in Senegal, and abandoned on the side of the road by more than one driver. As producer and host of TV Frames, a show focusing on urban culture using a documentary-style format, Jennifer pursued the global art, music and culture scene all over the world. Using colour photographs, Belong highlights a unique approach to cultural reportage: knocking on doors, walking the streets, and taking risks. From the sophisticated corridors of artsy Stockholm to the dirt roads of Bamako to the people-littered streets of Mumbai, this is a collection of stories about the global art scene and the eccentric characters that make it up.
