Photographer spends 10 Years Searching for the Original Locations of the Most Famous Reggae Vinyl Covers

Alex Bartsch is a photographer and also a big reggae fan. Being introduced to Bob Marley’s music as a child, that had a huge impact on him and inspired him to take a 10-year journey around London just to find the original locations of the most famous reggae vinyl covers that dated from 1967-1987.

During his journey, he was able to learn some patterns that will help him in his research. He would focus on the place where the band came from, where their studio was, and other information relating to them.  He now counts more than 70 pictures of vinyl with the exact location in his collection. As some of the buildings hadn’t changed at all, unfortunately, some of them didn’t exist anymore.

With all that amount of pictures he collected he was able to publish his project in an incredible photography book. Scroll down below to see these cool photographs yourself.
