Legends: Behind and In Front Of The Lens

Coming up soon (as soon as I edit the video), we'll hear from David Burnett on the day of the inauguration, about how he prepared for the ceremony and his plans to cover it. David is a great "go to" guy for the wisdom of the ages (well, at least photographically).

David's wisdom and genius shine through in his upcoming exhibit - "Soul Rebel - An Intimate Portrait of Bob Marley", which has its opening next Friday, February 6th, and running through March 28th. The Amazon book details summarize it well:
In 1976, while on assignment in Jamaica for Time magazine, David Burnett photographed Bob Marley for the first time, and Burnett became so entranced by Marley’s charisma that he continued to document the reggae king throughout his groundbreaking European “Exodus” tour. Burnett’s vision, coupled with Marley’s larger-than-life charisma, resulted in an amazing collection of images, only a handful of which appeared in the Time article. The other photos — more than 200 in all — appear for the first time in Soul Rebel.
To buy the book at Amazon, his this link - Soul Rebel: An Intimate Portrait of Bob Marley in Jamaica and Beyond, and for more details about the show, hit the jump.

Looking forward to this. I notice he can be seen in David Bergmans huge panoramic of the inauguration using his 4x5 surrounded by 600mmVR's and the like!
