Exhibition: Soul Rebel by David Burnett
Soul Rebel by the internationally acclaimed photographer David Burnett is photographic glimpse into the life of legendary musician Bob Marley. The exhibition is currently running at Gulf Photo Plus till 15th April. I have not had a chance to check it out myself, but hope to go soon.
In 2009 Burnett published “Soul Rebel: An Intimate Portrait of Bob Marley” containing more than 200 portraits of the charismatic performer. The book shared many previously unpublished photographs of Marley, as captured by Burnett following their initial meeting in 1976 while on assignment.
TIME magazine had sent Burnett to cover the Reggae movement in Jamaica, which led him to a meeting with Marley who was relatively unknown at that time. This rare glimpse into the intimate life of Marley spans the course of his rise to international stardom, and unveils perspectives of his energetic performances, as well as the quieter moments behind the scenes.
