Bob Marley and me

In May 1973, just a teenager, Dennis Morris skipped school because Bob Marley & The Wailers were in London. He was determined to get a photograph of his new musical hero. Not only did he do that, Morris was to help turn his hero into a legend. As a new biopic of Marley is released, we find out what it was like to witness first-hand his stratospheric rise to global superstar, with some of the most iconic images Dennis Morris shot.
