Bob Marley: Spirit Dancer

type
  • Book

Reggae’s greatest performer would have been 50 in 1995, and Bob Marley: Spirit Dancer is intended as an early celebration. Marley, who died of cancer 13 years ago, comes across in Talamon’s black-and-white photographs as at once ferociously tough and elegantly fragile. Shot by Talamon in mid-concert, Marley is all sinew and style; caught in the lens offstage, the singer seems reserved and distracted — you’ll notice he’s never looking anyone in the eye. Gaze at this book while playing his music. B+
