"These three photographs were taken in 1974 on the infamous 'Catch A Fire' tour, which was the United Kingdom tour to promote the 1st album on Island Records. One evening on the tour, Bob and I were sitting and talking and Bob suddenly said to me: 'Let me show you how to smoke a spliff, Dennis!' There are only 3 shots, for obvious reasons! The atmosphere was created naturally by the amount of smoke coming from the spliff which the camera picked up on. It was taken on my trusted Leica M3 with 35 mm lens no flash, just available light!
This series has become as iconic as the Che Guevara photo; when you go to uni on your dorm room wall, you either have a Che or a Bob poster. This trio has become one of Bob's most iconic, known and loved shots. It is in Rolling Stone greatest images of rock 'n' roll. In the Bob Marley Museum in Jamaica it is recognized as one of rock 'n' roll greatest photos." - Dennis Morris
