On Saturday March 29th a new exhibit called “Bob Marley: GIANT” will open at the Los Angeles Known Gallery. It will showcase photographs that were taken by Dennis Morris, who is a professional photographer and best known for his photographs of Bob Marley. In this gallery, there will be 28 intimate portraits and live shots of the Reggae artist. Dennis Morris is a British-based photographer who used a camera to create a body of work on extraordinary individuals, such as the Sex Pistols.
Morris was just a teenager in high school when he met Bob Marley. He was just another kid in line waiting to meet him, but he asked if he could take his photograph, and that was the start of a friendship. Dennis Morris ended up joining Marley and The Wailers on their 1974 tour of Northern England; gathering a trove of photographs that show the band on stage, smoking, playing, laughing, etc.
So, if you’re the type of person that enjoys Reggae music, or are an admirer of the great Bob Marley, or simply like him because he's cool, then head over to the Known Gallery to see these rare photographs.
