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.
Photo-journalist David Burnett first photographed Bob Marley in 1976. Burnett's vision coupled with Marley's larger-than-life charisma resulted in an amazing collection of previously unseen images in Soul Rebel: An Intimate Portrait of Bob Marley in Jamaica and Beyond.
