From the Back Cover
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.
About the Author
Named one of the "100 Most Important People in Photography" by American Photo magazine, David Burnett launched his photo-journalist career at Time magazine in 1967. From 1970 to 1972, he covered the Vietnam War as a staff photographer for Life magazine. In 1975, he co-founded Contact Press Images in New York. Traveling to more than 75 countries, Burnett has produced photographic essays for Time, Life, Fortune, The New Yorker, The New York Times Sunday Magazine, and many others. His famous photos of Valerie Plame and Joe Wilson during the CIA leak captured national attention, his work during in Vietnam exposed the grueling trials of a seemingly endless war, and his candid inside the White House and on the campaign trail shots of American Presidents since JFK have characterized the pressures of the job. His awards include "Magazine Photographer of the year" from the Pictures of the Year Competition, the "World Press Photo of the Year," and the Robert Capa Award from the Overseas Press Club, to name but a few.
