Burnin': Bob Marley Photo Exhibit in Los Angeles

Bob Marley: "Burnin’" (1974) by Dennis Morris

Photographers loved Bob Marley and Marley loved photographers, giving many access like Dennis Morris, whose Marley pics will be on display in L.A. starting Saturday

Morris met Marley while he toured England with the Wailers in 1974. He continued to shoot him in England and Jamaica until Marley died in 1981. Morris took many iconic Marley photos, including the "Burnin'" series above.

"Let me show you how to smoke a spliff," Marley told Morris. "That was my initiation."

Bob Marley: GIANT, Known Gallery (441 North Fairfax Ave.), Mar. 29 to Apr. 12.
