Camden's Proud Galleries are showcasing an intimate collection of photos of Bob Marley and many more of Reggae's main players, in an exhibit that will transport you back to the heady heights of the genres golden age.

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.
