Product Description

On assignment in Jamaica for Time magazine in 1976, David Burnett photographed Bob Marley at his Tuff Gong home in Kingston, Jamaica, and then on the start of the seminal Exodus tour. Capturing the legend at an exceptional moment in time, Burnett’s work intersects with both the zenith of Marley’s career and the traumatic upheaval of his flight from Jamaica after an attempt on his life. For any reggae lover or music history buff, Bob Marley offers a matchless glimpse into the legend’s life at home.

About the Author

Chris Murray, Introduction: Chris Murray is the founder and director of Govinda Gallery in Washington, D.C. For over 30 years, Murray has organized more than 200 exhibitions of many of the nation's leading artists. He has been involved in SHOTS: An American Photographer's Journal, 1967-1972 by David Fenton, Elvis at 21: New York to Memphis by Al Wertheimer, and Days of Hope and Dreams: An Intimate Portrait of Bruce Springsteen.

David Burnett, Photographer: 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 in Vietnam exposed the grueling trials of a seemingly endless war, and his candids inside the White House and 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.
