A collection of portraits, performance and personal shots by photographer Kim Gottlieb-Walker are now on exhibition in New York.

Through her photos, Gottlieb-Walker charts the rise of reggae with an unparalleled insight into the genre’s most iconic artists.

The images were captured in Jamaica and Southern California in the mid 1970s and many of them will go on display for the first time.

This collection of powerful and pivotal pictures features Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer, Lee “Scratch” Perry, Heptones, Inner Circle and Jacob Miller, Jimmy Cliff, Junior Murvin, Toots and the Maytals, George Harrison, Burning Spear and Third World.

The exhibition will close on November 18.
