Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 1976, while on assignment in Jamaica for Time magazine, David Burnett photographed Bob Marley for the first time, and Burnett became so entranced by Marleyand#8217;s charisma that he continued to document the reggae king throughout his groundbreaking European and#147;Exodusand#8221; tour. Burnettand#8217;s vision, coupled with Marleyand#8217;s larger-than-life charisma, resulted in an amazing collection of images, only a handful of which appeared in the Time article. The other photos and#151; more than 200 in all and#151; appear for the first time in Soul Rebel. This stunning visual biography offers a rare look at Marleyand#8217;s personal life in Jamaica, as well as the exodus from his home country that culminated in his tragic death in 1981. Though it focused on Marley, Burnettand#8217;s work also canvassed a wide array of up-and-coming reggae talents, providing striking early looks at Peter Tosh, Lee Scratch Perry, Burning Spear, and Ras Michael. Compelling and incomparably candid, Soul Rebel is a remarkable testament to the legacy of a legend.

Synopsis:
