London's ever excellent Proud Galleries are holding an exhibition of shots capturing the golden era of Reggae, in an impressive collection of unseen photographs from photo-journalist Kim Gottlieb-Walker. Kim had inadvertently become the Wailers' personal photographer after her husband, Jeff Walker, landed a role as Head of Publicity at Island Records. The result is a dreamy and candid snapshot of life hanging out with the artists whose music was to capture a generation.
Kim's intimate shots, capture the main players during what would become a much loved and much referenced period in music history as Reggae grew to an international level and Marley became a household name. With everyone from Lee "Scratch" Perry, Bunny Wailer and obviously Bob Marley, making an appearance it's the perfect exhibit to get a glimpse of while the city is sunkissed.
Bob Marley & The Golden Age of Reggae, Proud Camden, 7th April – 15th May 2011, www.proud.co.uk
A book of the same title is published by Titan Books, £24.99 RRP
