A brand new exhibition of “rare and nostalgic” archive photographs of legendary reggae musicians taken by Pogus Caesar hits Bristol this week.
The 'Reggae Kinda Sweet' exhibition will be open daily from 17 October up until 2 November (10am-6pm).
A special launch event will take place on 20 October from 4pm to 7pm, including an introduction from local writer Edson Burton.
The exhibition, which takes place at the Trinity Centre on Old Market and includes photographs selected from the OOM Gallery Archive, coincides with Black History Month and 50 years of Jamaican independence.
From BURNING SPEAR in 1985 to BIG YOUTH in 2011, this unique exhibition of largely unpublished images documents how reggae music has changed and renewed itself over the decades.
Other featured artists in the exhibition include DENNIS BROWN, MIGHTY DIAMONDS, JIMMY CLIFF, AUGUSTUS PABLO, LEE “SCRATCH” PERRY, BLACK UHURU, SLY DUNBAR, MAD PROFESSOR and MAXI PRIEST.
