n 1974, Jamaican reggae singer-songwriter Bob Marley met 16-year old photographer Dennis Morris and was immediately taken with him. Over the next 7 years, the two developed a friendship as Bob went on tour and Dennis captured some of the most iconic images of him at concerts, backstage, and between shows.
In this short documentary, Dennis tells the stories behind his famous photographs of Bob, what he learned from his work with him from 1974 to 1981, and his collaboration with contemporary artist Shepard Fairey.

Steven Harrington is an artist and designer based in Los Angeles. Like the psychedelic, cartoonish art of Anthony Ausgang, Harrington’s drawings and designs are broadly appealing, having been exhibited in art galleries and incorporated into apparel, furniture and skateboards. Curating for MOCAtv the self-described “image maker” selects videos that speak to his playful aesthetic, including a rotoscoped animation of Cab Calloway and Garfield’s Halloween Adventure.
