About this title

Synopsis:

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 Marley’s charisma that he continued to document the reggae king throughout his groundbreaking European Exodus” tour. Burnett’s vision, coupled with Marley’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 more than 200 in all appear for the first time in Soul Rebel. This stunning visual biography offers a rare look at Marley’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, Burnett’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.

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.
