Bruce W. Talamon has shot for Time, among his many other projects.From Booklist:
Bob Marley is not only an important cultural symbol. He is also something of a cottage industry. Sound recordings, videos, and desultory paraphernalia make of him, even in death, a potent and profitable figure. This volume largely of portraits represents a maturing of the Marley market even as the fascination with all things Marley filters down to fans too young to have seen him alive. Tasteful and well done, Talamon's photographic essay stands in stark contrast to some of the raw, slapdash products intended primarily to cash in on Marley's fame. The photographs catch Marley in relaxed, even introspective moods, and Timothy White's lengthy foreword lays to rest some of the misunderstandings and errors in previous Marley studies. Moreover, this is a thoroughly entertaining book that captures the mystical mood of reggae and advances the study of a figure who, like Malcolm X, to whom Talamon compares him, has grown greatly in influence and stature since his death. A moving portrait of a great musician, religious leader, and force for peace and justice. Mike Tribby
