Captured by Paul Natkin: Bob Marley, Chicago, 1978 (Black & White)

In 1978, photographer Paul Natkin made a concerted effort to photograph “people other than just rock and roll guys.” It was a good decision. Natkin captured this stunning shot of icon Bob Marley in Chicago that year, as Marley performed for an audience of mostly “Jamaican Americans going out of their freaking minds with happiness.” Don’t miss his tale.

“Almost every move that he made was a great photograph.”
