Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On assignment for Time Magazine, journalist David Burnett first photographed Bob Marley in 1976 at his home in Kingston, Jamaica. Burnett continued to document the music legend on his seminal Exodus tour, this time for the pages of Rolling Stone. "Our assignment was about reggae," as Burnett explains, "and Bob Marley was THE man."

"Burnett captures the haunting misty mornings of the Isle of Spring and the private jamming and cloudy studio wizardry of its musical magician," says former Reggae Beat cohost Roger Steffens of the images in Bob Marley. "We see intimate portraits of ... the prophet, Bob Marley, deep in thought and serious as a heart attack."

With more than 100 incredibly candid images, this compelling portfolio intersects with both the zenith of Marley's career and the traumatic upheaval of his flight from Jamaica following an attempt on his life. Capturing such an extraordinary period, the images of Bob Marley are essential viewing for every fan of Marley and his music.
