In honor of Bob Marley's birthday on February 6th, Govinda Gallery is pleased to present the exhibition, Soul Rebel: An Intimate Portrait of Bob Marley. Soul Rebel presents for the first time David Burnett's extraordinary photographs of one of the most beloved and respected international musical artists of our time. On assignment for Time Magazine, Burnett first photographed Marley at his home in Jamaica in 1976 and continued to document Bob Marley and The Wailers on the Exodus tour in Europe while on their bus, in rehearsals, and during performances throughout Europe during the spring of 1977. Burnett's award-winning talent, coupled with Marley's larger-than-life charisma, resulted in this extraordinary collection of previously unseen photographs. Also included in the exhibition are compelling images of The Wailers, Peter Tosh, Lee "Scratch" Perry, and more.
This exhibition celebrates the publication of Soul Rebel: An Intimate Portrait of Bob Marley (Insight Editions, 2009). Featuring David Burnett's photographs and stories, published for the first time, Soul Rebel is sure to be a treasured book for music lovers around the world. Soul Rebel features a foreword by acclaimed author Chris Salewicz, one of the leading writers on Jamaican music and culture, as well as an introduction by Soul Rebel's editor, author and curator Chris Murray.
