A new BHM exhibition to celebrate Bob Marley

NEW EXHIBITION: Bob & I by Esther Anderson

IN CELEBRATION of Black History Month, Gallery Delarue will present an exhibition of photography by Jamaican actress, award-winning filmmaker, photographer and activist, Esther Anderson.

Anderson reveals an up close and personal window into the life of Bob Marley through thousands of brilliant, grainy photography of the Jamaican reggae icon shot in 1973.

The series of photographs illustrates Marley’s emergence and transition between a street poet and a political rebel, and gives a rare glimpse of his life before he evolved into the Rastafarian that he would become.

Alluringly, Bob, Wailers and Reggae music was still unbeknown to the world. Esther is responsible for some of the most Iconic shots of Bob and the Wailers.

Anderson said: “My work is not pandering to those who know Bob Marley as a music icon. My photographs reveal Marley beyond the bounds of a musician, as the messenger who could reach out to a global audience, a poet of past and future.”

This exhibition will be open from the 21 – 22 October at the Hospital Club (24 Endell Street London WC2H 9HQ) during Black History month to celebrate the achievement of Esther Anderson, a true Icon of our times.
