This photograph, entitled The Lime, captures Samuel Selvon, John La Rose and Andrew Salkey. The Trinidadian term ‘lime’ or ‘liming’ has a similar meaning to ‘hanging out’, and involves socialising without time constraints. The photographer, Horace Ové, was born in Trinidad and is now known as one of the leading Black filmmakers in post-war Britain.
Together with Edward Kamau Braithwaite, La Rose and Salkey were founding members of the Caribbean Artists Movement, which was active from 1966 to 1972.
